Arsenal eyeing move for £25-rated South American

Report from Sports Mole is claiming Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing 19-year-old Brazilian midfielder Antony this summer.

Antony currently plys his trade for Sao Paulo, where he broke into the first team towards the end of last year and has continued to impress both domestically and in the Copa Libertadores.

Goal reports that Arsenal and Champions League quarter-finalists Ajax are both monitoring the progress of the teenager ahead of a possible move when the transfer window reopens.

However, Sao Paulo will not consider any bids below €30m (£25.8m) for a player they regard as one of their brightest prospects.

Antony only recently signed a new contract with the Brazilian outfit, keeping him tied to the club until 2023.
