Arsenal have been linked with a move for 17-year-old Brazilian Luis Henrique.
The teenager currently plays for Botafogo but, according to reports, could be sold in January. His agent, Kia Joorabchian, famously brokered West Ham United’s moves for Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano, and wants to make a huge amount by selling Henrique to a European club.
Unfortunately, he has a £40m release clause and a contract until 2017. If Arsenal want him, they’ll have to spend big.
The youngster has four goals in 14 appearances (but just 799 minutes) this year and is set to star at the u17 World Cup this month, alongside Arsenal players Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Stephy Mavididi, Chris Willock and Kaylen Hinds.
At just 17, this kid could just be the ‘next big thing’ but at a silly price, you can pretty much rule Arsenal out.
