Corinthians striker Detinho is the player being linked with a transfer to Arsenal after Richard Law told a Spanish newspaper that a deal is “progressing well” with a “Carlos Vela type-player”.
Brazil based scout Sandro Orlandelli has been keeping tabs on the highly-rated 19-year-old with the speedy forward reportedly keen to make a move during the January transfer window.
Bruno Ferreira Bonfim, better known as Detinho, strikes the ball with precision and calmness, not forgetting his superb finishing skills. Detinho would be a welcome addition to the squad and would cause extra competition for places upfront.
He rejected a big-money move to Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia after opting to stay at ‘Todo Poderoso’ for the time being.
Greek giants Olympiacos are also on the trail of Detinho, their chief scout Niniadis has been spotted at several Corinthians games and with the possibility of linking up with fellow countrymen Dudu and Diogo, the starlet would have several options to choose from in January.
