Real Madrid are interested in Flamengo midfielder Joao Gomes.
Gomes has been likened to Manchester United midfielder and former Real star Casemiro.
ESPN says Real see Gomes as a potential replacement for his fellow Brazilian.
They’d be willing to pay €30m for the youngster.
Liverpool and Manchester United are also mentioned as suitors for the 21 year-old – and both would be prepared to outbid Real in January.
