About Matheus Reis, Arsenal Questions
It appears that we will be hearing a lot more about Matheus Reis in the years to come. The first team of the Fluminenese is already working with the Brazil under-17 international. And he’s getting a lot of attention these days.
Among the teams that seem to be in contact with Fluminense already are Arsenal. It was reported by Talking Transfers that Edu had personally scouted Andre, a midfielder.
Fulham seems to be in the lead in the Andre race right now. But a number of Premier League teams are currently keeping a watch on another player that the team has on their roster.
Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea have all reportedly inquired about Reis, according to Calciomercato. There is a £43.75 million release clause in his contract. And rumours have it that his supporters in the Premier League have become disillusioned.
The fact that the report claims he is compared to a cross between Gabriel Jesus and Marcos Leonardo will especially thrill Arsenal supporters. Real Madrid and Newcastle are two teams that are interested in Leonardo.
The Gunners are aiming to bring in another promising Brazilian player.
Naturally, Arsenal already has a strong roster of Portuguese-speaking players. And the acquisition of Gabriel Martinelli was among their most noteworthy recent additions.
It will obviously be very challenging to locate another Martinelli. However, the fact that nearly every elite player in the Premier League is pursuing Reis speaks volumes.
With so much attention already being paid to sign Reis, it will be fascinating to watch how his destiny unfolds in the upcoming years.
