The Ligue 1 side have pulled out of a move for the Arsenal flop after the 24-year-old Brazilian forward failed a medical

Wellington Silva's transfer from Fluminense to Bordeaux has fallen through after the Brazilian forward failed a medical.

The collapse sees the 24-year-old denied a second chance at European football after a disappointing six-year spell at Arsenal, during which he failed to make a single appearance for the Premier League club.

After joining the Gunners for €4 million in 2010, Silva spent time on loan at Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Real Murcia and Bolton Wanderers, before returning to Fluminense in 2016.

He had agreed a deal to join the Ligue 1 club subject to a medical, but Bordeaux confirmed via Twitter they had opted against finalising the move.

Silva has scored seven goals in domestic league and cup competitions for Fluminense this year.
