Arsenal keen on to agree deal for South American stopper

Brazilian outlet Bola Vip writes about Arsenal interest in Corinthians shot-stopper Matheus Donelli.

Timao already have goalie Cassio, who is edging towards the end of his professional career, and the 19-year-old Matheus was expected to be his replacement.

However, the Brasileiro club made another move and are close to landing Ivan, from Ponte Preta, for the position too.

That ruined Donelli’s plans, and now his representatives told the board he will be looking for a new club. Since his entourage is Jorge Mendes, the player can be offered to eye-catching destinations.

So according to the same report, the talented youngster’s name was pushed to the Gunners, already in 2021.

it is said he has actually been followed by the London outfit since 2019 when he won a title with his country’s Under-19 national team.

Bola Vip then claims that Arsenal’s senior figure Edu Gaspar, who was also a director at the Neo Quimica Arena outfit, got a 19-page document about the highly-rated talent.

His staff are likely to bring offers to the club in the coming days, even though it is not clear if Mikel Arteta’s side will be making one of those.
