Arsenal closing on deal for Corinthians striker Pedro Henrique

Arsenal are closing on a deal for Corinthians striker Pedro Henrique.

That's according to Brazilian journalist Neto, when speaking on his Os Donos da Bola podcast.

He stated: “I heard that Pedro could go to Arsenal.

"However, the club did not let him go to the World Youth Championship. Prior to that, he played for the national team in every match. It is difficult to say what will happen in the end."

Sport-Express, meanwhile, are reporting Zenit St Petersburg have first option on Pedro, 17, as part of Yuri Alberto's move to Corinthians.
