According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are  interested in Benfica's highly rated youngster Goncalo Guedes, dubbed the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo' by fans and pundits alike.

The 17-year-old, who currently plays for the Benfica B team, would cost a staggering £40m however - and Arsenal aren't the only side watching him.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are also rumoured to be interested, but Arsene Wenger's preference for young players may place the North London club as favourites for his signature.

Although Guedes is currently in the process of signing a new 5-year-deal at Benfica, this is unlikely to stop a leading side coming in next summer.
