Juan Quintero: Here's Why Arsenal Are After Exciting Portuguese Star
if reports in the Daily Star are to be believed, Arsenal are looking to snap up the young attacking midfielder for a mere £16m from Porto, but they'll have to beat off competition from Southampton who are also interested in putting the midfielder in their shirt for the remainder of the season.
He's short in stature and a left footer, so Messi comparisons have been coming in thick and fast since his debut for the Colombian national team aged 19. He's been the man providing the assists for Jackson Martinez to bang countless goals in for Porto, and could prove to be the key to any English club looking for those extra goals to secure a Champions League spot.
If in doubt of his prowess, watch his highlights reel and see why Wenger is so keen to have him at The Emirates.
