Published Add your comment

Arsenal fans are eager to see what Wellington Silva has to offer after his £3.5m move from Fluminense in 2009 although has, as yet, not been afforded a chance to demonstrate his talents.

Currently Silva is plying his trade for Almeria in Spain, managing five assists in 25 games. Although the stats are certainly not in his favour, they fail to sum up what Wellington is all about.

As you'd imagine, Silva posses a lot of flair. He is a very skilful winger and loves nothing more than leaving full backs in his wake. He's an exciting prospect who, like most Arsenal wide players, is lightning quick.

The 22-year-old is yet to make his way into the Arsenal squad due to work permit issues, however, in late 2014, it was confirmed that he had been granted the necessary paperwork. Fans now await his return to the Emirates Stadium.

Wellington signed for Arsenal in 2009, however, he remained in Brazil for an extra two years after his transfer due to his age. Since moving to north London he has been shipped out on loan five times.

But it would appear he will at least be given the chance to prove his worth for the Gunners ahead of next season and, for all Arsenal fans, the news of Silva's availability is as good as a new signing.

Back when he signed for the club, supporters were itching to see Silva in the famous red and white. Now, after four stressful years, the Emirates Stadium crowd can finally look forward to the prospect their Brazilian starlet lighting up the Premier League.

Do you think that Wellington Silva will have what it takes to make an impact for Arsenal?
