Arsenal reportedly amongst six European clubs interested in Sao Paulo striker Brenner

A recent report from Italy has credited Arsenal with an interest in Sao Paulo forward, Brenner.

Who is Brenner?

Brenner is a product of Sao Paulo’s youth system.

And barring a brief loan spell with Fluminense, he has spent all of his career with Sao Paulo.

Brenner is now 20 years of age and has notched 37 appearances across all competitions for the Brazilian outfit’s first-team.

Most of those outings have come in the current 2019/20 Brazil season.

All told, Brenner has garnered 25 appearances this term, in which he has scored 15 and assisted three.

Brenner is naturally a centre-forward but he is more than capable of playing on either flank.

Arsenal linked with Brenner

Such versatility may have played some role in Brenner seemingly garnering the interest of some top European sides.

As per a recent report from Calciomercato, six of Europe’s top clubs are showing an interest in the hitman.

Said clubs are believed to be Lazio, Juventus, PSG, Ajax, AC Milan and Arsenal.

It is also claimed that Brenner, who has just over two years left on his current contract, has a fairly hefty release clause for foreign clubs, believed to stand at €50m.

However, Calciomercato do also suggest that he could depart Sao Paulo in the summer for a lower fee.

Lacazette replacement?

In terms of Arsenal’s reported interest, could Brenner be seen as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette?

The Frenchman, who will be 30 by the end of 2020/21, has just under two years left on his current deal and has been struggling for form of late.

He was also linked with a move to Spain over the summer. So, given his age and declining form, perhaps the Gunners would be better served cashing in on him and replacing him with some fresh legs, such as Brenner.
