Arsenal target Brazil sensation Anthony

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery

Bengaluru, May 9: Arsenal are reportedly in the hunt to lure Brazilian forward Antony away from Sao Paolo in the summer.

The Gunners are understood to be desperate to sign a winger at the end of the season as Unai Emery looks to add pace and width to his struggling Arsenal side.

According to reports in Brazil as well as in France, the North London outfit are one of a number of clubs looking to nab Antony, with the player available for £21million.

Ajax, Monaco, PSV and Lyon are all believed to be vying for the 19-year-old, along with Arsenal.

They claim that Antony's agent Junior Pedroso has flown to Europe to hold a series of meeting with potential suitors.

Arsenal have reportedly sent scouts to watch the Brazilian starlet in action at the Paulista Championship.

Antony has featured nine times for Sao Paolo's first team since making his debut last season, though he is still yet to net his first professional goal.

The Gunners are also closing in on the signing of Antony's compatriot Gabriel Martinelli, with the teenager to link up with the squad in the summer.

Arsenal are understood to have agreed a £6.5m move for the 17-year-old, who has been turning heads at Ituano.

The Gunners are also chasing another Brazilian winger in the shape of David Neres, with the wide man starring at Ajax this season having chipped in with 12 goals and 15 assists.

Arsenal look set to be priced out of a move to lure Lille ace Nicolas Pepe to the Emirates, with the French club wanting around £69m for his signature.

Pepe is wanted by a host of other European giants that include stellar sides like Liverpool, Bayern and Manchester United.

Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser has been identified as a cheaper alternative, with the Scottish international claimed to want to leave the Cherries.
