ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Arsenal pushing hard to sign “crazy” new gem for Arteta

Mikel Arteta

It’s been a frustrating season for Arsenal so far. Whilst the Gunners have been impressive throughout the majority of the campaign,

A loss of concentration in December saw them drop to fourth and five points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Heading into the second half of the season, they’re slips that Mikel Arteta’s side can ill-afford if they want to win their first title under the Spaniard.

Now that they’re back among Europe’s elite, however, part of Arsenal’s focus has seemingly turned to the future

And ensuring that this is an era spent competing for the top honours rather than eventually falling once more. And that could see them land a Brazilian gem.

Arsenal eager to buy new player

In recent years, Arsenal have rarely misplaced a step in the transfer market, making up for lost time to build a side who are competing for the Premier League title for a second consecutive season.

Last summer was arguably their biggest transfer window under Arteta yet, as Declan Rice, David Raya, Jurrien Timber and Kai Havertz all arrived.

Now in a position to attract top players, those at The Emirates appear to be thinking about the future

And finding players capable of dominating English football in years to come, which could see one particular player arrive.

Front page news from Mundo Deportivo on Sunday claimed that Arsenal are one of the clubs bidding hard to sign Estevao Willian from Palmeiras.

The 16-year-old can’t complete a move to Europe until he turns 18,

But is already reportedly attracting the interest of the Gunners, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite being so young, it seems as though it won’t be long before the winger has a career-defining decision to make.

Given how successful Gabriel Martinelli’s Arsenal move from Brazil has gone,

The Gunners could yet tempt Estevao into making a similar move when the time comes.
