Fluminense striker Marcos Paulo is regarded as one of the top talents in Brazil, so much so that his club inserted a £40 million (R857 million) release clause into his contract when he was just 17 years old.

The player is said to have caught the eyes of various scouts in Europe during a youth tournament in France, and West Ham United are understood to have already made an approach for the starlet.

However, David Moyes will have stiff competition as Arsenal and Leeds United are also interested in the forward, while Watford and Southampton have also been mentioned as suitors, according to TeamTalk.

The 19-year-old would join compatriots Willian and Gabriel if the Gunners signed him, but the latest reports suggest that the Hammers are currently in the lead for his signature.

Arsenal's London rivals have reportedly already held talks with the player's representatives, and with Paulo having played for Brazil at youth level, it would not be too difficult a task to get him to England.

Do you think Arsenal should splash the cash on the young Brazilian? Let us know in the comments section below.
