Everton 'reevaluating' move for Reinier Jesus

| Tuesday, 13 August 2019 46comments  |  Jump to last
A report from Brazil suggests that the Blues are still interested in signing Reinier Jesus but have taken a step back in the negotiations.

According to Globo Esporte, Everton are considering the valuation of the talented teenager following reports they were set to sign him for €40m from Flamengo in January when he turns 18 and would be eligible for international transfer.

The report suggests that Everton are trying to get the final fee lowered, a possibility that strengthens as the 17-year-old's contract gets closer to its December 2020 expiration.

However, a rumour has surfaced today that Arsenal could be lining up an offer in the coming weeks for a player who is widely regarded as Brazil's next sensation.

Everton would be an attractive destination for Reinier in England because of the presence in the Toffees' squad of his compatriots Richarlison and Bernard, not to mention the Portuguese-speaking management duo of Marco Silva and Luis Boa Morte.

Sometimes I don't understand transfer fees.

We paid £28M (or so) for Alex Iwobi; maybe he's not world-class but still has made over 100 appearances for Arsenal by only age 23. We paid about the same for Moise Kean, who scored 6 in 13 games for Juventus last year, already at 19 an Italy international (with 2 in 3 for the Azzurri) and was one of the hottest young strikers in Europe.

But a 17-yrear old who has made 1 appearance for a Brazilian club costs more than both of them? Is it all just about potential?

I would have paid more than that after seeing Rooney for half an hour in a U21 cup quarter final game. He was the best player I had ever seen in the flesh by a mile (I’m 40).

If he’s that good and obvious, then it’s not potential and doesn’t matter whether or not he’s played a first team game.

Peter, you are spot on. I remember seeing an 18-year-old Gazza make our midfield (and we had a good one) look second rate. I'm sure quite a few TWebbers were in attendance that day.

Newcastle were pretty hopeless and lost but Gazza stood out as the best player on the pitch. It's not often you witness that calibration of performance/player first hand. The Gazza who joined us years later wasn't quite the same.

Mike Galley

Mike, was that the home game against Newcastle on our title run-in during the 1987 season. If so, I couldn't agree more. If Gazza sold Reidy one dummy that day, he sold him a dozen!

I was about 17 that day, and all the talk amongst the lads was that we had just watched the start of a special players career.

As you say, sometimes it's obvious with special young players.

Steve Ferns

Does he though Clarence?

Take Lukaku to Man Utd. They paid £75m or £90m for him depending on who you speak to. It was largely reported as the lower price because the press were told to say that by United. Everton went with the higher price as they wanted to maximise the value.

Very little money will change hands for this boy. It will all be contingent on performance factors. That's how these transfers are done and £40m will only be paid if he wins the World Cup for Brazil and gets us into the CL. Something like that anyway,

I never saw Gazza for Everton but I did see him for Burnley right at the end of his career. I was in the Pompey end (my local team) and, even then, I've never seen an opposing team back off a player like that. It was almost like a testimonial. He loved it and pinged the ball around for the 20 minutes or so he was on the field. Glad I got to see him but sad I never saw him in his prime or that he truly realised his gift.
Ben Howard

On the subject, pay the money! I'm a romantic and not a pragmatist. He's surely the next big thing, maybe.

Remember that Gaza game. He hit the bar at the Gwladys Street end. jumped on the fence stuck his tongue out, shrugged his shoulders and jumped down to get back to playing in the match. He was brilliant.

Some kids are born with it and he was its just a pity his personality couldn't handle the attention and fame. Great footballer though and a pleasure to watch. By all accounts this Brazilian kid is the same, he's just a natural, so go get him. Don't let AFC do another Ramsey on us, ffs.

Alan J Thompson

I thought we had done this deal but had to wait until January when he turned 18 and would then be allowed to go abroad with his football.

Anyone know seen Bill recently?

Bob Butchard
10 Posted 14/08/2019 at 09:27:35
It's a no-brainer, make sure he signs in January, I can't imagine our super recruiter letting him slip through if he is as good as all reports.
Sam Hoare
11 Posted 14/08/2019 at 09:51:37
He's only just now getting his first minutes at senior level, mostly from the bench. And only 34 of them so far.

Makes sense to have a little peak at how he makes the adjustment before agreeing on a price. Though the danger is that if you wait too long another club steals a march.

I think we must be quite an attractive opportunity for a young Brazilian though with a Portuguese manager and the likes of Bernard and Richarlison in the team. Plus there is a clearer route to first-team minutes than there would be with a lot of the bigger clubs. I suspect that's one of the reasons Kean came to us.

What does £40M get you these days, 2 x Danny Ings. Worth a punt I would say, get it tied up.
Fran Mitchell
13 Posted 14/08/2019 at 11:04:58
If the lad was of any other nationality, we wouldn't be so fine with possibly blowing 40m on a kid.

Clearly any fee would be clause dependant, but still. And the wonderkid of Brazil today isn't the wonderkid of yesteryear.

Vinicius Je went to Madrid for an absurd fee, and from what I can see hasn't done anything to justify it.

Most previous wonderboys: Gabriel Barbosa - Pato - Oscar - among many others, crashed and burned in Europe.

These pLayers are barely making grounds in their own league, but with huge media hype, sponsors, agents and such, get hugely over rated so that their fee is over inflated and some scum bag management group makes a fortune.

Youngsters from Flamengo are even more hyped up - Flamengo is like the Man Utd of Brazil. Every game on TV, from Rio but biggest fanbase is probably the north east. Everything Flamengo do is national news, despite not actually being that good at football and not winning anything for years. But they are always the 'favourites' with the biggest 'craques'.

I know very little of this lad, but the value seems ott.

There is also the issue that most of these Brazilian players don't become what they may well could, because the blood sucking capitalists want to sell to Europe at the earliest opportunity.

In the past, players like Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos and co all grew, developed, and won stuff before they moved to Europe and became the best players in the world.

Now they get shipped out, along with hundreds others, all across Europe before they'be barley played a game.

The result so far is the worst Brazilian national team in decades.

Mike Doyle #3 - I was at that game watching an 18 year old Gazza. I'd never heard of him and he really stood out. We battered them but it must have been in the late 80s and we were a good side. He could dribble right through people.
Steve Ferns
16 Posted 14/08/2019 at 11:08:37
I remember those dark days when Gazza played for us. He was a weird shape. Skinny little arms, that weird barrel stomach complete with six pack but not flat, and then sparrow legs. He was obviously on the booze and not eating and training hard to try to be fit.

Gazza was never the quickest of players, but at Everton he moved with all the pace of a snail. You couldn't fault his effort or his commitment (on the pitch). He clearly had a relationship with Smith and tried to give him his all. We all know his demons, and despite looking like he had it under control at Everton, we now know that this was not quite the case.

I used to find it sad to watch Gazza play. In a lot of ways he was the worst player on the pitch and looked like he needed to pack it in, but whenever he got on the ball, he seemed to come alive, and if he had time and space then he was still a fantastic passer and had a great shot. The control, touch and technique was still there, but he couldn't beat a man any more as he just did not have the legs.

The worst thing was that he played in a side with players like Ginola and Blomqvist, ie older players, tired legs or injury problems of their own. Maybe if he was surrounded by young runners it might have worked. Instead it was a disaster and we were heading down playing dreadful football until Moyes came in. I think some people forget just how bad it was back then.

Wot fellow Brazilian-based Blue Fran Mitchell writes.

As I was when this story first broke, I am again astonished how gungho some posters are willing to be with the club's money on signing a kid who has played just half an hour at adult level for such an eye-watering sum.

Fran lists many fine examples of Brazil's next big thing who were sold for big money having actually shown they COULD handle senior football. This kid hasn't even got that on his CV.

Subsequently loaned out to a succession of clubs, they never cracked Europe and found themselves back in Brazil. And Fran's list was not an exhaustive one.

Apply this scenario to our own academy. It's like the Spanish, Italian or German giant clubs offering us €40 million for a 17 year old Kieran Dowell.

How would that have worked out?

Maybe one day Everton's status and finances will be robust enough to take a punt on a deal such as this, as Real Madrid have with Vinicius Jnr.

That day, I suggests, still remains a long way off.

To close on a related issue, I hope Paul the Esk is running the numbers and preparing an article on what are summer dealings means for our finances.

His (and Tom Hughes) breakdown of the financial implications of player purchases and stadium costs give this reader for one causes for concern.

Steve Ferns

Pato? Isn't that Portuguese for duck? Whatever happened to him? He was brilliant for AC Milan, then got a few injuries and ended up at Chelsea as a washed up 25-year-old.

I remember he was married to the Italian PM's daughter as well (Berlusconi - the guy also owned Milan and pumped loads of cash into them).

Mike Gaynes
19 Posted 14/08/2019 at 14:04:01
Fran #14, you can't say Pato "crashed and burned in Europe" -- he scored 57 goals in 125 games over his first four seasons at AC Milan before the injuries and partying started to catch up with him -- but your point of view on this is irrefutable.

These players are oil well investments -- a few become gushers but most never develop and turn out to be wastes of money. The Brazil wonderboy label is the ultimate in hype.

Steve #18, Pato spent two seasons in China and is now back in Brazil playing for Sao Paolo. He dated but didn't marry Berlusconi's daughter, who was actually a director at AC Milan when he played there. Talk about sleeping with the boss... !

Jay Wood
[BRZ]

20 Posted 14/08/2019 at 14:47:44
Steve and Mike.

Pato is a prime example of 'buyer beware' as far as the Brazilian Boy Wonder tag goes.

Unlike young Jesus who we are linked to, as a youth he did play senior football before getting his big money move to Milan where he absolutely hit it out of the park as Mike highlights...for a couple of seasons.

But good looking party loving guy that he is, football became a distraction to his nocturnal activities. Dating and dumping Berlusconi's daughter quickly resulted in Milan dumping him for a mere €15 million to Corinthians under now current Brazilian manager Tite.

Tite doesn't suffer fools gladly. Corinthians were crowned champions. Pato was not part of the team, quickly packed off to mid-table Sao Paulo for a TWO SEASON loan.

Corinthians thought all their Christmases had come early when amazingly Chelsea took him on a half season loan with an option to buy. He occasionally shone as a player of his ability should, but not enough to convince Chelsea to make the deal permanent.

Spent time in Spain and China. Now back at Sao Paulo once again where, on his day, he looks like one of the best players in the league.

But there is a reason he is not placed in the pantheon of great Brazilian footballers as his skills promised he would be.

Gabigol at Flamengo looks the best striker in Brazilian football, but couldn't convince in Europe. Wagner Love - a good pro with a good career - is also back in Brazilian football at Corinthians and also looking like one of the best players in the league in his mid-30s.

It's a measure of the middling standard of Brazil's Serie A. It will be an interesting watch if, as is rumored, Moise Kean's idol Mario Balotelli signs for Flamengo this week.

Steve Ferns
21 Posted 14/08/2019 at 15:20:21
Jay, I heard that about Balotelli, I thought it was a joke. Surely, he cannot be swapping France for Brazil? More recent reports say he's off to the other Serie A, after turning down Flamengo. He had a good time in France, 43 goals in 76 games for Nice and then 8 in 12 for Marseille as it seemed he got his career back on track.
Fran Mitchell
22 Posted 14/08/2019 at 15:30:52
Seems Balotelli has decided to return to Italy with Brescia.

But yes, the Brazilian league has dropped in standard dramatically. Most teams play a mixture of Allardyce and Dyche football, and few players would get into a side in any of Europes top 5 divisions.

Look at Palmeiras, the 'best team in Brazil' with the dick head that is 36-year-old Felipe Melo running the midfield, Strikers like Deyverson who spent their rather average best years in China. Managed by 'big Phil '.

Not there isn't talent to be found. Brazil is a huge country, population of Like 200,000,000 and is football obsessed.

The best players who could well make a career in top-level European football are Pedro from Fluminense (22-year-old striker), The much talked about on here Everton Soares from gremio, and his teammate Matheus Henrique.

Paul Bernard
23 Posted 14/08/2019 at 15:34:32
I hope we sign this lad as I cant remember the last truly world class player Everton had (edit: If he becomes what he is touted to be I mean). Rooney was half potential/half proven before sold. Lukaku was a world class player - on his day.

The closest I have ever seen a player at Everton that could mix it with the best is Bainesy, consistently class without ego (may of been his downfall).

As for this 'clearer pathway to first team football' — I'm sorry but our U23s have won their league for two seasons running, I don't see any of them even remotely close to the first team (Kenny Loaned out, Davies a squad player). Instead, we have Walcott, Schneiderlin and an ageing Coleman ahead of the kids. Either the kids aren't good enough, or they aren't given enough minutes. In my opinion, they aren't good enough when they have been given a load of minutes and patience, but produced nothing.

Resurrecting Jesus appeared to be successful last time around so there's no rush.
Derek Knox
26 Posted 15/08/2019 at 09:10:51
I know there is always a risk signing any player, whether he is an aspiring young talent, or even a proven player.

If Marcel Brands has seen this lad personally, and believes with the right guidance he can become an asset, I see no reason, why with a structured payment arrangement, this shouldn't be worth a follow-up.

I also appreciate the input from our Brazilian based Blues, who get to know more than we do by way of our media. I also believe too that the very fact a player is Brazilian, the hype can be excessively flattering in proportion to the player's ability.

In summation, the way prices are going for players, and IF this kid is potentially the real deal, I think with a graduated payment plan, the worst scenario (if it was to go pear-shaped) is that we would possibly get our money back.

Liam Reilly
27 Posted 15/08/2019 at 12:10:43
£40M is most likely just agent hype although the rumours are that the kid has something a little special.

Definitely some talent to be had in the South America market; worth a look if you've not seen it.

Jay (#20); Would you mind refraining from using phrases like "the young Jesus" as it gave me visions of Brands, Silva and Kenwright coming over the hill bearing gifts of frankincense, myrrh (some sort of Norwegian goalkeeper, I think) and the cover of a settee seat.
Steve Ferns
29 Posted 15/08/2019 at 13:44:11
Paul, world class is a term few can agree on. For me it means the best in the world. So a world class striker is the best striker in the world. There can only be a very few of them, therefore, certainly less than 5. Others are of the view that it means the best and approaching the best. So a world class player could be one of 20 for his position.

If I'm right, then Lukaku was never world class as he was never the best in the world. In fact the only truly world class player we have had since 1990 is Neville Southall. Kanchelskis could be argued to be world class and was certainly in the top 10 right forwards / right wingers in 1995.

One excellent player we had was Mikel Arteta. We could never argue he was world class as he never got in the Spain side. Had he done so, then he would have been world class as they had a truly world class midfield. So if you accept Arteta at his best was NOT world class then we have not had a world class player in midfield since 1990, as Arteta was as good as we have had.

There was a time when Baines was the Premier League's best left back, but he was not the world's best left back, so he was not world class. Same with Coleman. I think Dave Watson was as a good an old fashioned central defender as there was in the world at that time (1987-5), but he was not playing for England and so was not the League's best (Pallister was begrudgingly better but I won't admit that to mancs), so he was not world class.

One player, that I am not particularly a fan of, that we did have that we can say was world class was Duncan Ferguson. Whilst he was not a world class striker and therefore not a world class player, he was world class at heading the ball. Certainly at his peak there was no better player in the world at heading the ball.

As for the present side, we do have one guy. Moise Kean. Trust me this lad is the real deal. He could be world class. Richarlison is also progressing that way, but I suspect his ceiling is below that level, but all it takes is to make the next world cup side, bag a load of goals and he's able to stake a claim. Lucas Digne is on a level similar to Baines, but he is in the French side and like Richarlison could achieve greatness with the national side that would confirm him as world class.

What a risk. But, looking at some players the RS have, they seem to make risks pay off.

What I never know is whether a club is just buying as an investment to recoup a handsome return later.

Guess I never will.

Jay(#28); it wouldn't be the first time as some years ago there was a fable that went, if memory serves, something like;

Three supporters were sat in a field and unto them came a vision of Jimmy Gabriel, dressed in blue and white and carrying the FA Cup. He told the supporters to go down into the village of Walton into the palace of Goodison where they would find born unto them a saviour, son of the King of Kings, son of Alex Young. So they set off and on the way were met by the Lord Chief Travesty of Justice, Shankly himself, who asked them where they were bound and they told him to find a saviour named Whittle.
Shankly told them to bring this saviour to him and he would make a footballer of him and they begged him not to ruin his career.

Others say that is just how we got a church in the corner.

Just cannot leave it unquestioned when it is said that Vinicius Jr. has not yet shown anything for Real Madrid. Really?

last spring he was the one shining beacon in a Madrid side that was awful. The ONE shining beacon(Ok, and Benzema) among players like Modric, Bale, Kroos etc

His shooting still leaves something to be desired, but for me he has already been somewhat of a revelation.

Frank Wade
38 Posted 20/08/2019 at 18:11:17
A lot will depend on the lad's character and whether he has the mental capacity to adapt and play well in the Premier League. As said above, the Brazilian links with Richarlison and Bernard should be able to advise him, plus the Portuguese speaking Silva and Boa Morte. From what I can see here, albeit, all played at Youth level, he has the strength, vision, skill and composure to make it. There's the added bonus of a classic own-goal 2 mins in here. Link

If Marcel reckons he's worth the £40m, that's ok by me ? I have given up judgements myself as I thought Liam Walsh had the passing range and composure to make our first team.

One thing is his favour. Wearing that yellow No 10 shirt, previously worn by some decent players in the past, even if in a Youth team.

Paul Burns
39 Posted 20/08/2019 at 20:59:53
People are talking rubbish.

Pato was garbage at Milan, Vinicius has done nothing in the worst Real Madrid side in decades and Dave Watson was well better than Pallister.

As for Rooney being unproven when we sold him, well, I'm not even going to comment on that nonsense.

Honestly.

My old memory is prone to fail me yet I was at Goodison when a certain young bloke first appeared against us. We took the mickey out of him unmercifully as the young chap from any distance took wild potshots at our goal and missing by the proverbial mile.

Each time he got the ball our fans would roar, Shoot! and sure enough he would let fly with another hopeless howitzer.

Next time he came it was vastly different. He was firing bullets and all on target. His name was Bobby Charlton. I think Bobby was not quite as young as those already mentioned.

Dave Abrahams
41 Posted 08/09/2019 at 09:07:47
Frank (38), Liam Walsh, playing now at Bristol City, did/does have the passing range to play in the Premier League, don't give up on him yet.
Sam Hoare
42 Posted 08/09/2019 at 09:52:59
Reinier got his first start last night for the senior Flamengo team. He ended with a goal and assist and was a candidate for man of the match. Many more performances like that and he will be beyond us and likely headed to Madrid, Barcelona etc.

Very difficult to know how such a player might adjust to the Premier League. I think assessing character, work rate etc is just as (if not more) useful than innate talent.

Once the team is more settled I think we can expect one or two more South American imports. For the last year, it's been about building a dependable core of players between 21-29. That's almost done now bar another centre-back so Brands can afford to maybe take a punt or two on younger, less proven players with superstar potential. I'd be excited to see Reinier at Everton next season!

Tom Bowers
43 Posted 09/09/2019 at 13:25:54
If the lad has that much ''potential'' then rest assured his parents have already been approached by Real Madrid or Barcelona and Everton will be way down the pecking order.
Sam Hoare
44 Posted 09/09/2019 at 13:37:21
Tom, undoubtedly those clubs will be aware of Reinier but perhaps we are willing to pay more up front? Or are attractive to him because we are more likely to offer more minutes to him?

Once he has had his breakout season in the Brasileirao then it will be hard for us to get him but if you go in early then anything is possible. As we saw with Richarlison and indeed Joao Pedro.

Phill Thompson
45 Posted 09/09/2019 at 20:37:49
Dave (41), Liam Walsh is now on loan at Coventry City from Bristol City, having failed to establish himself in their first team. He's 22 soon so not a great move for him given the promise he showed for us at 18.

Sam @ 42.

Sorry to (continue) putting a damper on some people's enthusiasm for young Reiner, but there are a number of reasons he made the starting XI for league leaders Flamengo yesterday.

Firstly, unlike the European leagues, Serie A in Brazil was not suspended for the international fixtures, even though Brazil themselves played on Friday and will play again on Wednesday.

Brazilian teams are also awash with many other South American players who were absent on international duty. Therefore, no Serie A team fielded their strongest XI this weekend.

Secondly, Flamengo were playing rock-bottom Avai. Think Derby County when, if memory serves me right, they returned the worst ever record in a PL season. 18 games into the season, it was only on Monday night last week - game 17 - that Avai recorded their first win of the season. And that was against Richarlison's old team Fluminese who themselves are surprisingly deep in the doh-da in the relegation zone. Avai only won that game with an injury time penalty.

Avai has 10 points from a possible 54 - 18 games - having scored just NINE goals all season.

Not the most challenging of opponents then to judge young Reinar on, playing for the most potent attack in the league against the most impotent.

Flamengo have a string of very tough fixtures coming up, not least their next game home to Santos: league leaders playing second in which a win for Santos will see them leapfrog Flamengo to regain top spot.

Let's see if Reinar gets selected for games such as those and seeing how he plays before advocating Everton signs him 'blind' to get a jump on the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona as you advocate.
