Arsenal is reportedly showing interest in Corinthians’ young talent, Pedrinho, as they continue to actively scout the South American market.
Having already integrated several Brazilians into their current squad, Arsenal appears to have found success in acquiring players from the country.
With former player Edu leading the club’s technical department, the Gunners have developed a keen eye for identifying promising talents in Brazil.
Given this background, it comes as no surprise that Os Donos da Bola show host, Neto, has mentioned Arsenal as a potential destination for the 17-year-old Pedrinho.
Recent discussions have centered around Pedrinho’s absence from the U20 World Cup, as his club declined to release him for the tournament. Furthermore, there have been questions as to why he is not receiving opportunities in Corinthians’ first team.
Neto said in his show as quoted by Sport Witness:
“You have Pedro… Pedro I don’t know what’s going on. If the kid is going to be sold to Arsenal… I don’t know, huh. Remember I told you, Vessoni? Because here’s the thing, he didn’t go to the World Cup to play. And he’s good with the ball. He came in every game and doesn’t come in anymore.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
We have our eyes on most youngsters in Brazil and it could be true that we are tracking Pedrinho, but he is not ready for our first team.
If he makes the move to the Emirates now, he will be sent to our youth team to develop further and be ready for the senior side.

We don’t really give the young talent a shot to begin with. Balogun probably off and sold, ESR likely to follow.
Marquinhos on loan, and probably never see an opportunity if we add another winger. Nelson has been underused and likely off also.
We have an academy of players waiting for a chance, so adding another youngster from another league doesn’t help us with the experienced players we need now.
That’s true we need mature players,coz for the two seasons we were disappointed due to lack of experience at the end
What position does he play, clearly there seems to be some talent out there.
