Brazilian starlet, Vinicius Junior has caught the attention of top premier league teams. Just 16, he has alerted top European clubs of his vast potentials by putting in some eye-catching performances for the Brazilian U17 Team.
He has scored 17 goals in 18 matches for the Brazilian U17 team, making himself one of the world’s top youngsters to watch out for.
He has a contract with Flamengo which runs until 2019, but the Brazilian club is desperate to keep hold of him beyond his current contract.
According to reports, Liverpool, Man Utd, and Man City have all made approaches for the Brazilian. City would be less cautious in making a move for the youngster particularly after a great start to life for their other Brazilian import, Gabriel Jesus.
He is thought to be valued at £26 million, but would only be eligible to leave his homeland after he turns 18. Other European heavy weights such as, Barcelona and Real Madrid are said to also be monitoring the player.
