Brazilian teenager Eric dos Santos Rodrigues is said to be of great interest to some of Europe’s top clubs with Arsenal and Atletico Madrid standing in pole position to sign him in January.
The 18-year-old defensive midfielder has been likened to former Chelsea man Ramires and both Arsenal and Atletico Madrid are said to have been following him closely over the past couple of months.
Eric dos Santos Rodrigues currently plays for the Brazilian outfit Clube Bahia and has made nine Serie A appearances during the current campaign, making two assists during that time.
UOL Sport reports that the talented teenager is set to leave his club in January, adding that Arsenal have been identified as his preferred destination.
Ramires will remain with Clube Bahia until the end of the season, which closes in December. A potential January move to England will thus suit both parties involved in this deal.
