Arsenal linked with Brazilian teenager

Arsenal are being linked with a summer move for yet another Brazilian.

The player in question is 17 year old Flamengo winger Matheus Goncalves, who is also on the radar of Manchester City, Ajax and Benfica.

He has been described as one of the best prospects ever to emerge from the Flamengo youth academy, who only made his debut in October, but is already touted as having a big future in Europe.

The Gunners already have a strong Brazilian presence at the club, and with Technical Director Edu overseeing all transfer activity, they have a network of scouts across the South American country hoping to spot the next Gabriel Martinelli.

Goncalves is currently under contract until 2025, and his contract is rumoured to include a release clause of £88 million.

Realistically, though, Flamengo accept that a bid as low as £3 million may be enough to secure his services in the summer.
