Ladies and gentlemen, meet 16-year-old Reinier Jesus, the latest Brazilian wonderkid to catch the eye of European football's biggest clubs.
Jesus, who currently plays at Flamengo, has impressed on a number of occasions for the academy team and has been linked with various clubs, including Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus and Roma.

Liverpool are another club who are keen on his signature, according to Flamengo's former club president, Kleber Leite via Anfield Edition.
"I received certain information that the English club, who were monitoring the young Flamengo and Brazilian midfielder Reinier, 16, have already started negotiations with the boy's family."
"In the chest and in the race, our young values are being erased prematurely, without even being able to write a page that is in the history of the Brazilian club that put it in the world of the ball."
"Reinier will probably have another two years as a Flamengo player. Very little. Sad..."
