Brazilian forward Malcom Silva has been putting himself on the map with Corinthians, and has attracted the attention of Arsene Wenger, as reported by Brazilian publication Calcionews24.
Despite only being 18-years-old, the pacy forward has already racked up 67 appearances for Corinthians. He has a real eye for goal too, which has seen him compared to Brazil’s golden boy Neymar.
He broke into the side back in 2014, and hasn’t looked back since. He looks set to make a move abroad soon, with a number of European clubs chasing his signature.
The report suggests we are keeping tabs on the teenager with a view to move for him soon, but we may have to speed things up if we don’t want to miss out.
Turkish side Fenerbahce have apparently already started discussions with the player’s agent, and Calcionews24 claims we’d need to move fast if we want to bring him to North London.

Calling him the next Neymar is obviously a little premature, and he has a long way to go before making even a fraction of the achievements his senior compatriot has. But he certainly looks a quality player, so perhaps we should move for him this January.
