Fernandes is a 20-year-old midfielder who is known to be technically gifted and tactically astute, operating in central midfield for Botafogo. The Brazilian is a wanted man, according to reports, and Spanish club Villarreal are understood to have joined Arsenal in scouting the player.

If they are indeed keen to recruit the midfielder, though, it seems they’ll need to move quickly to fend off competition from across Europe.
