PSG have reportedly put an offer on the table of €20m plus €20m in bonuses to sign Palmeiras’ teenager Estevao Willian, also known as ‘Messinho’, with Arsenal said to be in contact with the player’s agent.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Real Madrid had agreed a deal to sign 16-year-old Endrick from Palmerias in 2024 when he turns 18.

The player, regarded as the hottest property in South America by many, had been briefly linked with Arsenal but the Gunners always seemed much more interested in his 15-year-old teammate.

They are not alone.

A report from France claims that PSG have moved quickly, trying to get well ahead of the competition after it was reported that Arsenal have been in touch with the player’s agent.

This comes after they reportedly had another bid turned down, but there is no word yet if this one will be succesful.

Because of his age, like Endrick, Willian will not be allowed to move until after his 18th birthday which falls on 24 April 2025.
