I haven't seen confirmation, but it looks like a 'Wenger' signing.
Bernard Anicio - 20yr old Brazilian left sided winger. Reportedly in for £21m.
According to reports, Liverpool & Spurs were also after him.
He's little, but looks good.
He's very good John, but it begs the question, what have Theo, OX, Gary Coleman, Wilshere, Frodo Baggins, Cazorla, Bernard, and Danny Devito all got in common??
I bet Sam Allardyce will be looking forward to playing you!

I don't think we are the same team who used to get pushed around by the likes of Stoke or Blackburn a couple of seasons ago. Wilshere and Ox can look after themselves quite well. Cazorla faired pretty well in his first season and Walcott has finally started to gain some weight/strength.
I agree that when you look at the likes of Reyes and Eduardo, you'd be mistaken to think that all diminutive players with South American origins are weak. Sergio Aguero and Messi are both sturdy and strong players with a low centre of gravity, which can be an advantage.
I will grant you however, that the EPL is no playground for lightweights.
