Arsenal close to signing Fluminense youngster
Rio side Fluminense look like losing another exciting junior team player if Arsenal get their way. Wellington Silva Sanches Aguiar is an attacking midfielder who can operate as a forward and was on trial at the london club in December.
The player has already appeared for Brazil at Under 15, 16 and 17 year-old levels but has not signed professional papers with Fluminense.
Wellington was spotted by Flu when he was playing for local rivals, América. Very little is known of midfielder in Brazil. But as a 16-year-old, the teenager did impress in Brazil’s most prestigious junior competition, the Copa São Paulo.
