Arsenal are reportedly tracking down striker Welliton.

Russian sources claim that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keeping tabs on the forward and apparently wants to bring the young Brazilian to this summer.

The 24-year-old, who managed to net 21 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for the Russian outfit last season, is currently in his final year of his contract, and it is thought that the Moscow club are seeking bids starting at around £12 million for the striker.

Bundersliga side are also said to be interested in Welliton’s services this summer, but according to sources, Arsenal appear to be in pole position for the Brazilian’s signature.
