UOL journalist Paulo Vinicius Coelho says a move to Arsenal is more likely than Atletico Madrid.
Ramires, 18, was given the nickname due to his similar playing style to the former Chelsea ace.
Ramires recently negotiated a new contract with kit supplier Adidas but the German company reportedly sent a different representative for the talks.
A Bahia official said: “This is not the representative of the sports equipment company that normally talks to the athletes.”
Interestingly, Adidas will become Arsenal’s official kit supplier at the beginning of the 2019/2020 season.
