    Arsenal have reportedly identified Sao Paulo club Ituano winger Gabriel Martinelli as a potential summer signing, according to Brazilian media outlet UOL Esporte, as quoted by The Evening Standard.

    The Gunners are one of several clubs interested in the Brazilian winger, who is in the process of securing an Italian passport, which could help in a move to Premier League club such as Arsenal.

    The teenager is thought to be attracting interest from 25 different clubs across Europe ahead of next season.

    Arsenal manager Unai Emery is a big admirer of the 17-year-old as the Spaniard boss looks to bolster his squad.

    The Evening Standard adds that the north Londoners manager has identified a signing on the wing as a priority in the upcoming summer transfer window.

    Arsenal will take on Valencia in the Europa League semi-finals next week.
