Arsenal urged to go for Boschilia ahead of Brazil U17 teammate Nathan

Arsenal are being urged to go for Brazil U17 World Cup star Boschilia ahead of his teammate Nathan.Arsenal are being linked with both players, who impressed in this month's U17 World Cup.

But Brazilian transfer expert Nicola Giuliani says Sao Paulo's Boschilia is the one Arsenal should push the boat out for ahead of Atletico Paranaense starlet Nathan.

He explained to "I would say that I prefer Boschilla slightly ahead of Nathan because his incredible speed would be a danger to all defences.

"His left-foot is regarded the best at Sao Paulo and he recently signed a new contract to 2015 - so I do not expect Sao Paulo to give him up cheaply. Boschilia has fantastic speed and technique, he has everything to succeed in Europe. He only needs to build himself up physically."

On Nathan, Giuliani says he is just as talented.

"I'd compare him with Oscar at Chelsea. A great dribbler, he is certainly a prospect for the future.

"But Boshilla looks more ready for a big European club at this moment."
