The Gunners are eyeing a swoop for Corinthians’ Brazilian wonderkid Maycon, according to the Sun, as Arsene Wenger looks to add some South American magic to his squad.
The 20-year-old is a central midfielder by trade, possesses wonderful technical ability, and would undoubtedly add some pezaz to Arsenal’s engine room.
Despite his tender years, Maycon is already relatively experienced, having played 45 games for Corinthians, and he has really impressed with the mature manner in which he goes about his business.
The Sun claims that the Brazilian club want around £9 million for the 20-year-old – a fee that the north London outfit will have no trouble matching.
They do go on to suggest that Corinthians would want the player back on loan immediately for the rest of the season, however.
Arsenal have been extremely active during this transfer window, already bringing in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Konstantinos Mavropanos.
They have also been heavily linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as Arsene Wenger continues to plan for life without Alexis Sanchez.
And with just one week remaining until the transfer window slams shut, this will be one for Gunners fans to keep a close eye on.
