Arsenal are set to face competition for the signing of Brazilian wonderkid Endrick.

Endrick currently plays for Brazilian club Palmeiras and is considered one of the hottest prospects in South American football.

He has been linked with a number of European giants in recent months including the Gunners, who have reportedly sent scouts to watch him play.

Last season, when he was still 15, Endrick bagged nine goals in 12 appearances as his side became Brazilian champions.

What has been said about the future of Endrick?

According to Ge Globo, via Fabrizio Romano, Endrick’s representatives have reported that PSG are yet to make a bid despite the interest.

“No proposal has been made by Paris Saint-Germain. They didn’t send €20m bid,” his representatives said. “PSG have been in love with Endrick for a long time.”

It is not yet clear where Endrick will end up but he could be playing amongst the very best soon.

He tweeted earlier this week: “Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the three clubs that are pushing hard to sign Endrick. They are ahead of all the other clubs.

“There’s no official bids to Palmeiras yet – but it will happen soon. Release clause: €60m. Endrick would join in 2024.”

Romano then quoted that tweet with a further update this morning: “Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain & Chelsea. Frontrunners, pushing to sign Endrick. Confirmed and still no breakthrough in negotiations with any club.”
