Leeds: Whites interested in Santos FC starlet Renyer

Leeds: Whites interested in Santos FC starlet Renyer -Leeds United News

Leeds United are interested in signing Santos FC forward Renyer, according to a report from Portuguese newspaper Record (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Prodigious talent

Only 18, Renyer has already made seven senior outings for the first team at Santos, having also been recognised at the youth level by Brazil.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, the right-winger has been likened to Manchester City superstar and four-time Premier League winner Riyad Mahrez by Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig, who lists ‘pace, acceleration, dribbling, flair, close control, technique and first touch’ as the player’s strengths.

Previously monitored by UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid, Renyer appears to have now attracted the attention of officials in Yorkshire…

The latest: Whites name-checked with interest

As per Record, translated by SW, Leeds and Benfica are now both assessing the Brazilian attacker as Director of Football Victor Orta attempts to bolster the Whites’ ranks.

The report claims that there is further Premier League interest in Reyner, who was described as a ‘wonderkid’ by scout and Santos devotee Andre Noruega.

Under contract until 2025 and possessing a perceived market value of £2.25million (Transfermarkt), despite the admiration from England and beyond, there is no mention of an asking price.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Exciting prospect

Predominantly operating from the right as a left-footed winger, similar to Leeds favourite and compatriot Raphinha, the four-cap Brazil Under-16 starlet attempted 1.3 shots per game despite only playing 33 minutes on average in four league outings in 2021.

Amidst those fleeting displays, the skilful Brazilian teenager produced a standout 7.20 rated display against Corinthians including one key pass, two shots on target and three successful dribbles (Sofascore).

Whilst it’s almost impossible to predict how a player as young as Reyner would adapt to life at Elland Road, adding such potential to Jesse Marsch’s squad, particularly should Raphinha move on this summer, would only be a welcome boost.
