A View From The Bridge
Barcelona ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Brazilian teenage sensation
Barcelona are leading Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Vitor Roque
Barcelona interest in Brazilian wonderkid Vitor Roque has sent shockwaves throughout the footballing world, as they reportedly lead the race to sign the talented 17-year-old from Athletico Paranaense, according to Goal (h/t Football. London)
Not only are Barcelona in talks to secure the services of the highly-regarded prospect, but Arsenal, Chelsea, Newcastle, and Paris Saint-Germain are all said to be monitoring the situation closely too.
Vitor Roque is one of the most exciting young talents to emerge from South America in recent years, and it is no surprise that the big guns of European football are all fighting to secure his signature.
The teenager has been touted as the next big thing in Brazilian football, and his performances for Athletico Paranaense have been nothing short of sensational.
Despite his tender years, Roque already boasts a wealth of experience and an impressive record of goals and assists for a player of his age. He is a versatile forward with a keen eye for goal and a natural ability to create chances for his teammates.
The €60 million (£53m/$64m) release clause in Roque’s contract has not put off the European giants, who are all reportedly keen to sign him. The race to sign the young starlet promises to be a heated one.
From a Chelsea perspective, Roque would be a fantastic addition to the Blues’ attacking ranks. The Stamford Bridge club have long been known for their development of young talent, and the addition of Roque would signal a clear intent to continue this trend.
He would bring a new dimension to the Chelsea attack, with his pace, skill, and goalscoring ability. However, the presence of Barcelona means this is going to be a very tough road ahead.
