Arsenal to buy Brazilian midfield prodigy Paulinho

Wenger willing to cough up £9m for the 23-year-old

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger seem to be all but done with Robin Van Persie. Whether he stays or goes now seems moot.

Which is why Gunners fans will be thrilled at the news that Wenger is plotting a move for Brazilian midfielder Paulinho.

According to a report in the Times, Wenger is preparing a £9 million bid for the 23-year-old, currently playing for Corinthians.

By Wenger standards that is a lot of money for a potential talent.

According to the Times report, the attacking midfielder scored 8 times in 35 appearances for Corinthians.
