Wellington Silva

Wellington Silva is finally nearing a pesky work permit, and we at Pain in the Arsenal already covered him extensively here, but I’ll highlight a few points again.

He’s referred to as the ‘new Neymar’ and who doesn’t salivate over the idea of Alexis Sanchez and a newer, younger Neymar rampaging down the wings?

Granted, he’s 22 so he better start being Neymar-like soon. But the kid is excited to play with the likes of Alexis, Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil (via an interview through the Express). He even compares his play style to that of the Ox and Alexis. If he truly has their ability to traipse about the pitch, from end to end, than you know Arsene Wenger will find a place for him on the pitch.
