Arsenal has an interest in Palmeiras youngster Endrick as he continues to develop his career in the Brazilian top flight.
The 16-year-old has caught the eyes of European clubs while playing for the same club that developed Gabriel Jesus.
There is a lot of hype around him, but he is developing fine and could be in Europe when he clocks 18.
Arsenal wants to add him to their squad, but Four Four Two reports they are not alone in the quest for his coveted signature.
Barcelona and Real Madrid also have an interest in him, which will pose a threat to the Gunners’ chances of adding him to their squad.
Madrid has lured the best young talents from Brazil in recent times and the success of the likes of Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior could tempt him to move to the Spanish side.
Barca also lured Neymar from Santos and most Brazilian players dream of playing for them.
Despite his height of 5’8″, Endrick is recognised as a complete striker. And his 165 goals in the youth team prove that he will arguably make his identity in Europe. The player is tenacious on the field and has excellent finishing skills. Endrick’s goal-scoring ability has been compared to Brazilian Ronaldo’s; the player is left-footed and can take on 1-2 defenders.
However, he is only 16 years old and has a promising future. If he remains sincere and focuses on his playing competence, no one can stop him from turning into the finest striker in the world.
Endrick’s style of play is that of an advanced striker, taking on defenders 1v1, and can play very well alone up top as the main piece of a team’s attack. Endrick has very good midrange and low-level shooting skills and is hard to take off the ball. Remember the name: Endrick Felipe Moreira de Sousa
