Reports are claiming that Arsenal are being talked into going for Brazil U17 starlets. The Gunners are being linked with both players, who impressed in this month’s U17 World Cup.
However Brazilian transfer expert Nicola Giuliani says Sao Paulo’s Boschilia is the one that the Gunners should snap up ahead of Atletico Paranaense starlet Nathan.
He explained : “I would say that I prefer Boschilla slightly ahead of Nathan because his incredible speed would be a danger to all defences”.
“His left-foot is regarded the best at Sao Paulo and he recently signed a new contract to 2015 – so I do not expect Sao Paulo to give him up cheaply. Boschilia has fantastic speed and technique, he has everything to succeed in Europe. He only needs to build himself up physically.”
On Nathan, Giuliani said:
“I’d compare him with Oscar at Chelsea. A great dribbler, he is certainly a prospect for the future.
“But Boshilla looks more ready for a big European club at this moment.”
Arsenal have been linked with another FIFA under 17 world player. Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheancho has also been linked to the gunners with reports claiming he is close to joining the gunners in a deal said to be worth as much as 450,000 pounds.
