RIO DE JANEIRO, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Belgium's Club Brugge and Racing Genk are interested in signing highly rated Brazilian striker Rodrigo Muniz, according to media reports in the South American country.

Both clubs have made inquiries with Flamengo with a view to securing the 20-year-old in the upcoming European summer transfer window, news outlet Globo Esporte said on Monday.

It added that Flamengo intends to maintain a percentage of the attacker's economic rights, allowing the Rio de Janeiro club to benefit from any future sale.

Muniz has caught the attention of European talents scouts by scoring five goals for Flamengo so far this season.

Racing Genk and Club Brugge currently have no Brazilian players in their respective first team squads.
