UOL Esporte: Ajax on pole to land Milan, Arsenal-linked Sao Paulo star with €50m clause

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in the running to land Sao Paulo star Brenner, a report from Brazil claims, but it is Ajax who are in pole position.

the striker has had a fantastic season so far having netted 22 goals (and four assists) in 37 appearances this season across all competitions, playing predominantly as a centre-forward but also as a winger on a few occasions.

Calciomercato.it first linked Milan with the 20-year-old back in November, adding that Arsenal, Ajax, Juventus, Lazio and PSG are all also keen, with the latter having been following him for some time now.

The Brazilian portal UOL Esporte (via CM.it) has announced that the team in pole position for the acquisition of Brenner is Ajax, who has a €50million release clause valid for clubs abroad.

However, the fact his contract is expiring in 2022 could lead Sao Paulo to accept a lower figure, while Brenner would find two compatriots in David Neres and Antony if he were to move there.
