Arsenal linked with highly-rated Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal look set to sign 18-year-old Palmeiras striker Gabriel Jesus in January, according to reports in Italy.

The highly-rated youngster has reportedly agreed to join the Gunners after impressing in his breakthrough season for the Brazilian outfit.

Gabriel scored seven goals in 38 appearances for the club in the past year and in 2014 netted 37 goals in 22 matches for the Palmeiras youth team.

He’s likely to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Wellington Silva, who was signed from Fluminense in 2011 but has yet to play for Arsene Wenger’s senior side due to a host of work permit issues which were only recently resolved.
