Everton are reportedly close in to completing a £36m transfer deal for 17-year-old Brazilian prodigy Reinier.
Reinier will reportedly complete his move from Flamengo to Goodison Park in January after turning 18.
Marco Silva’s side have beaten interest from both Liverpool and Manchester City to secure the youngster in a £36m deal, according to Esporte Interativo.
Reinier is yet to make a senior appearance for Flamengo but impressed at the Under 17 South American Championship this year.
Sportsmail reported earlier this month that City and Liverpool were monitoring developments with the Brazilian teenager Reinier.
AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund have also made enquiries into Reinier’s availability.
