Arsenal want teenager playing in the Brazilian fourth division

Arsenal are reported to be interested in signing 17-year-old Gabriel Martinelli, who currently plies his trade with fourth division side Ituano in the Brazilian State Championship

There has been a lot of interest in the youngster, Manchester United and Barcelona have already given trials to the teenager and Watford and Crystal Palace are said to be actively monitoring him.

The youngster started his career off with Corinthians but they let him leave after four years and that is how he has found himself in the lower leagues of Brazilian football, he has scored four goals in 17 appearances for Ituano but just the once in eight competitive games.

Martinelli is clearly talented to be attracting interest from such illustrious clubs, however, for some reason he has not convinced the likes of United and Barcelona to give him a professional contract but maybe the Arsenal scouts are seeing something in him that others are not.
