Premier League rivals Arsenal are set to battle Chelsea for the signing of Brazilian forward Reinier Jesus, according to Daily Express.

Reinier has scored four goals and provided two assists in 12 games this season, playing either as an attacking playmaker or on the wing.

Reinier plays for Flamengo in the Brazilian league and is under contract until 2024, but has a release clause of £60million for European clubs.

Arsenal have reportedly had talks with the player’s father and are hoping Gabriel Martinelli, who they signed in the summer, can convince Reinier to snub Chelsea and join Arsenal.

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly a huge fan of the Brazilian forward.
