Arsenal have reportedly joined newly promoted side, Leeds United in chase for 19-year-old highly rated Brazilian striker, Marcos Paulo.
Seeing how the signings of the last Brazilians have turned out at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal are eyeing up move to land yet another South American, Marcos Paulo.
At just 19-years of age, Marcos Paulo has managed to while playing for Fluminese drawn attentions from several top flight teams, which Arsenal aren’t an exception.
Although, according to sources, there is no stated asking price disclosed by Fluminese yet for the youngster but according to what Marcos Paulo has on his contract paper, his release clause is worth at £40m.
This makes it likely Arsenal might be thinking twice on the deal due to financial issues, unless they would want to move in on a loan bid which is likely to be turned down considering there are other suitors who could straight out cash in on the player.
Aside Leeds United, are the red-eyed West Ham United who would spray the cash to land Marcos Paulo.
More to follow in the coming days as Fluminese are yet to receive an official bid from either of these teams while Marcos Paulo remains valid for an International Passport which could have been issue with leaving for another country.
