Everton have been linked with the Brazilian wonderkid, with Marco Silva’s side believed to be keen.

Flamengo wonderkid Reinier Jesus Carvalho has started following Everton and multiple members of their first-team squad on Instagram, amid rumours he could be on the verge of a move to Goodison Park.

Globo Esporte claims that Everton are ready to pay £36 million for the Brazilian attacker, who is starting to build a big name for himself.

Despite only being 17, Reinier is considered to be one of the very best up and coming talents in Brazil, and Everton are said to be keen to snap him up.

The Brazilian reports claim that Flamengo directors will now fly to England to hold discussions over a move to Everton and the youngster has done little to quash the rumours.

Reinier has now started following Bernard, Richarlison and Yerry Mina on Instagram, as well as Everton themselves.

Of course, that is no definitive indication that he will join – but it does add to the intrigue in the new rumours.

If Everton were to snap up Reinier it seems unlikely that he would walk straight into their first-team, but he could be a real threat in future years.

Everton already have a strong contingent of South Americans at the club, with the Merseyside outfit’s scouting team known to be heavily scouting the continent.
