Arsene Wenger’s premier legitimate signing for the new year is believed to be in the form of Brazilian 15 year-old striker, Wellington Carlos Da Silva.

The Fluminese youngster reportedly completed a 7-day trial (in which he scored four goals against Norwich City on under 16 level) with Arsenal recently and have impressed the club’s coaching stuff enough for them to make a move to tie him down with the Emirates’ crop of talents.

And despite the Brazilian club’s reluctance to let go of their prodigy, Wellington’s parents have agreed to allow their son move to north London but there could still be a twist in the proposed deal as certain rules deny players younger than 18 from moving abroad and could result in the case of Manchester United’s Da Silva twins – a pre-contract agreement.

If Wellignton is signed, it will hopefully be the opening way of essential recruits this January.
