Arsenal to sign Luigi Gaspar from Corinthians

As confirmed by Brazilian website Meu Timao, Arsenal are set to sign Edu Gaspar’s son Luigi from Corinthians.

Luigi Gaspar is 15-years-old, as he’s set to move to the Gunners this summer.

It’s been confirmed that Arsenal will sign Luigi for free, as he wasn’t under contract at Corinthians.

That’s an obvious blow for Corinthians, who have trained Luigi since he was seven.

Thanks again for everything Corinthians. I will forever be grateful to all of you.
