Real Madrid is said to be close to signing yet another rising Brazilian star.

Zinedine Zidane's side has reportedly agreed a fee for Flamengo's Reinier, who could move to Spain this month. Chelsea, meanwhile, may have to wait until after the season has finished until its top targets become available.


According to widespread reports, Real Madrid is close to finalising a deal to sign Flamengo's Reinier. The 17-year-old could move to the Spanish capital in January and spend the rest of the season with Raul's Castilla team.

Reinier, who turns 18 on January 19 and will therefore become an easier deal to complete, will apparently cost €30m plus potential add-ons.


 - Chelsea  wants to sign  Jadon Sancho  and  Timo Werner , but the Premier League club knows it is likely to have to wait until the end of the season to complete the deals, according to Goal.

- Elsewhere in London, Sky Sports say  West Ham  has held talks with Benfica  midfielder  Gedson Fernandes , a reported target for  Manchester United . David Moyes said of the club's interest: "He is a name mentioned alongside many."

Inter is the latest team to be interested in  Christian Eriksen , say Tuttomercatoweb. Directors Giuseppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio want to close the deal quickly but Tottenham 's £30m asking price is a problem.

Nikola Kalinic  has been offered to  Newcastle United  as he has struggled for football since joining  Roma  on loan from  Atletico Madrid , say Marca.

- Still with Marca,  Real Madrid  has apparently earmarked three  Lille  players as potential signings for 2020:  Boubakary Soumare , Victor Osimhen and Gabriel .

- Sky Sports claim  Jan Vertonghen  is now more likely to join Napoli from  Tottenham  this month, as Ajax has apparently cooled its interest in its former defender.


- David Beckham's  Inter Miami is set to appoint a new coach in the form of  Anthony Pulis , the son of ex-Stoke City boss Tony. Pulis will work as assistant to Diego Alonso, say The Telegraph.
