Arsenal is interested in signing Palmeiras prodigy, Estevao Willian, following a €60 million bid from Chelsea for the young talent often compared to Messi.

Thiago Fernandes reports that Arsenal has joined the race for Willian, facing tough competition from top clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and local rivals Chelsea.

Chelsea is determined to outdo their competitors in securing the teenager’s signature, offering €40m (£34/$42m) plus €20m (£17m/$21m) in potential add-ons.

When asked about his future, Messinho had reportedly said previously: “To play for Barcelona, which is one of the best clubs in the world. I was born watching Neymar, Messi, and Suarez play for Barcelona, and that’s the dream I have. I watch almost every Barca match; I’m a fan of the club. I have great admiration for the players who play there, and I hope to be there too.”
