English tabloid newspaper The Sun is claiming that Arsenal are chasing Nacional da Madeira striker Nenê.
The 25-year-old arrived at the Estádio da Madeira from Cruzeiro last
summer and has been a sensation, scoring 14 goals in 17 games to
become the league's top-scorer.
Nenê's performances have not gone unnoticed, with Benfica allegedly interested in his signature.
new reports claim that the Eagles will have to fend off interest from
Arsenal to win the race for the Brazilian striker - who is contracted
to Nacional until 2010.
Arsène Wenger is believed to have
dispatched scouts to watch Nenê in action during last weekend's 3-0 win
over Vitória de Guimarães.
Arsenal could make a move for Nenê in
the summer, with the striker reportedly eager for a move away from
Nacional to further his career.
