Arsenal FC Reportedly Make Contact in Reinier Jesus Pursuit


According to the latest batch of transfer rumors, Arsenal has already made contact with the father of Reinier Jesus for a potential move to the English football giants. Jesus has been in demand by almost every other major football club in the region for about two or three months, ever since he debuted for Flamengo in July.

The debut seemed to provide an amazing springboard for Reinier Jesus as he has already scored four goals in just 11 Serie A appearances. The 17-year-old Brazilian sensation has inspired a lot of hype and he’s now on the radar of very notable football clubs such as Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Juventus.

It’s unknown as of yet whether Reinier will stay in Italy or head to the United Kingdom, but it’s obvious that he has many admirers, and for very good reason.

It’s realistic to believe that Jesus has fans all over Brazil and Europe as well, but according to rumors, the 17-year-old is extremely popular in Canada, where football (not the American version) is starting to gain a lot more traction  than any other sport, besides the national game of hockey of course.

Many are saying that the sudden surge in popularity is due to a large Brazilian community in Canada, that consistently watch the young star’s matches and cheer for him. Thus, his profile has been significantly raised in the country.

The hype has been building up so much that VIP casinos in Canada that feature sports betting options have started concocting tailor-made prop bets around the 17-year-old.

This may not be the type of popularity that Reiner has been looking for, but according to research, if he is able to remain consistent in his performances and deliver on what’s been anticipated from him, there’s a big chance he could become the next big thing in Canada. Punters tend to be the most loyal of supporters as long as you can deliver on the hype.


Whether or not these punters are anticipating a transfer to Arsenal remains to be seen as some Canadian betting operators are considering whether it’s worth it to add an option for betting on transfers.

In those terms, Reinier has guaranteed privacy in the choice he makes without losing supporters.

As for the definitive decision, we will have to wait until 2020 when Reiner’s Flamengo contract runs its course. Naturally, if there is any club out there willing to sign him up to their mid ranks, they will have to come up with a hefty 60 million GBP payment. Quite the achievement at 17 years of age, don’t you think?
