Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing Corinthians winger Malcom Silva.
Arsene Wenger’s side could launch a bid for the tricky winger since it has been revealed that Fernerbache recently opened talks with the Brazilian club.
According to Brazilian outlet Calcionews24, Arsenal’s interest in the winger is very strong and they could launch a January bid for the player.
The report claims Turkish Giants Fernerbache have already sent representatives to open talks with Corinthians and both clubs are in the process of thrashing out a mouth watering deal.
Malcom have previously attracted interest from some of Europe’s big clubs with his superb performances for the Brazilian outfit but the gunners are keen to act fast in order to win the race for the player’s signature.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Barcelona have been credited with an interest for the young Brazilian.
Corinthians are believed to be willing to sell the player to any club that meets the £20million mark.
The 18 year old is highly regarded in Brazil and is seen as the best young talent emerging from the country, Silva has also drawn comparisons with Neymar due to his pace and ability to score goals.
The tricky winger has been a prominent figure for the Corinthians side since making his debut in 2014 and has found the back of the net 10 times in 64 appearances.
The forward was part of the Brazil under 20 team that reached the FIFA U20 World Cup final early this year. The winger already has 13 appearances for the Sellecao’s Under 21 side.
