Arsenal chief Edu moves for Flamengo whizkid Reinier

Arsenal chief Edu has made a move for Flamengo whizkid Reinier Jesus.

Mundo Deportivo says Arsenal bosses have spoken with the player's father to discuss a transfer.

It is claimed the rising star's father visited Europe to look at potential clubs for the teenager.

A host of Champions League sides including PSG, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus have all been linked with the 17-year-old.

And it is also believed Everton held talks with the player over a potential January move.

But Arsenal are hoping their summer signing of Brazilian 18-year-old Gabriel Martinelli could encourage Jesus to favour a move to the Emirates.

The 17-year-old made his Flamengo debut in July and recently signed a new deal this month, which carries a &poun;60m buyout clause, after four goals in 12 games.
