According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Real Madrid starlet Vinicius Junior as the ace is reportedly no longer part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans.
Calciomercato’s report adds that Los Blancos may even decide to sell the Brazilian starlet in the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old has only started four of his 11 appearances across all competitions this season.
Vinicius’ countryman – Rodrygo, has burst onto the scene this season and Madrid already have fierce competition on the wings.
There’s no doubting that Vinicius is one of the most exciting young wingers in the world, we find it hard to believe that Madrid would be willing to part with such a high-potential talent.
As per BBC Sport, Los Blancos signed the winger from Brazilian outfit Flamengo for a fee of £38.7m.
This was Vinicius’ value two years ago, we can only wonder what the Spanish giants value him at now.
Zinedine Zidane’s side would be taking a massive risk by moving on such a talented prospect so early in their career.
Whilst it would be lovely to see the samba star at Arsenal – we think that a deal would be incredibly hard to arrange if the report’s true about Vinicius being available for transfer.
