Premier League club Nottingham Forest reportedly submitted an offer to sign FC Cincinnati striker Brenner.
Talks between the clubs are ongoing, MLSsoccer.com reported Monday.
Meanwhile Brenner has been training by himself the past couple of days in order to minimize the distractions for the MLS club, which opens the season Feb. 25 at home against the Houston Dynamo.
The 23-year-old Brazilian delivered 18 goals and six assists in 29 games during his second season with FCC in 2022. He had eight goals and two assists in 33 matches in his debut campaign in 2021.
There is a sense of urgency with the talks, as the transfer window in England closes at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
Cincinnati acquired Brenner from the Brazilian side Sao Paulo in 2021 for a $13 million transfer fee.
