Fluminense striker Wellington Silva to join Arsenal for preseason

Fluminense striker Wellington Silva is set to take part in Arsenal preseason training.

Flu president Alcides Antunes has confirmed the 17 year-old will be joining the Gunners officially next season.

"It's in the contract. We cannot do anything. I have not received the request yet, but there's no problem," he said.

Wellington will be eligible to play competitively for Arsenal when he turns 18 in January.
