Brazilian teenager linked with Gunners’ switch

Brazilian teenager Pedrinho is being linked with a move to Arsenal.

Still just 17, Pedrinho is a right footed left winger who plays his club football for Corinthians.

He has already played 15 teams for their first team this season and has managed five goals for them so far.

Already drawing comparisons with Ronaldinho, he has played for Brazil already at under 16 level.

He has a £43.5 million release clause in his contract, although Brazilian clubs traditionally need money and are prepared to sell players for a lot less.

Arsenal have begun to look at the South American market in a search for new talent, the shining example being Gabriel Martinelli, who was plucked from relative obscurity and has become a first team starter under Mikel Arteta and is now a full Brazil international.

Needless to say, Arsenal are not the only Premier League club tracking his progress, with both Brighton and Newcastle United also monitoring Pedrinho’s situation.
