Reports: Arsenal keen to sign more Brazilian youngsters after Martinelli's success

South American football expert Tim Vickery has revealed that Arsenal are in the market to bring in more Brazilian youngsters following Gabriel Martinelli's success. 

Martinelli has caught the eyes of many since joining Arsenal in summer and according to Tim, the youngster could be first of many unheralded names to sign for the Gunners from Brazil. 

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said, "They've been linked with the captain of Brazil's Under 23s, Bruno Guimaraes, who is strong midfielder, strong on the ball with a strong personality, has great lung power, perhaps lacks a little bit of a left foot to be a sensation in European football."

"The way the market is going, the European clubs are looking not so much for established stars, they're looking for the likes of Martinelli. They want to bring them over at 18, 19 and then develop them in Europe.

"The Arsenal scouting unit are looking for players in Brazil who are by no means household names at the moment."

The Brazilian has already netted 10 goals in just 21 appearances while providing three assists in the process.
