Arsenal linked with exciting Brazil-born Portugal teenager

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Fluminense teenager, Marcos Paulo this summer.

Born in Brazil, the 19-year-old plays international for Portugal and he has already featured for their under-18 and the under-19 national team.

Team Talk reports that West Ham is looking to bring him to the Premier League this summer, but the Hammers face competition from Arsenal and other Premier League sides.

He has been one of the top young talents in Brazil since he was 17 and his team placed a release clause of 45 million euros on his head at that time.

The report claims that his talents were brought to the attention of Arsenal and his other European suitors after he shone in the Toulon Tournament for the Portuguese youth national team.

He scored the winning goal against England who was the defending champions at the time, and he might be plying his trade in the Premier League soon.

A move to the English top-flight has been made less complicated by his international allegiance.

Arsenal signed Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari from the Brazilian league system and Paulo might also become a top star if he also joins the Gunners.

    Well obviously not gonna happen. Always up for a repeat Martinelli though if there is another player we can sign for peanuts that is completely unknown.

    Arsenal had a top prospect in Sam Greenwood and sold him to Leeds United for £1.5 million. Falorin Balogun is scoring goals for fun and wants to leave Arsenal because of limited opportunities. Arsenal can’t look after its own Academy prospects, apparently can’t buy its top priority players for the first team, yet is connected to every young prospect in Europe.
