Brazilian starlet Dentinho has been made available by Corinthians to a host of Premier League teams.

The 21-year-old forward has been compared to compatriot Robinho, and reports that Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all potential suitors.

Although yet to make his full-international bow, Dentinho has already appeared over 150 times for Sao Paulo based Corinthians - scoring a half-century of goals.

Timao now feel that it is time to cash in on their prodigy, and the hotshot is eyeing a move to England.

His representative told

“He is available for the right amount of money and interested in taking the next step in his career. He has no fear and he has no problem to be compared with other great players.


“Nevertheless, every player is different and therefore has different skills, goals, targets and things he wants from his career. He is physically and mentally strong and he is very determined in what he is expecting from himself.”


Temperamental Man City striker Robinho has found it hard to settle to life in the Premier League, and is currently out on loan at boyhood club Santos. However, Dentinho's representative does not believe that his player will suffer the same problems as his fellow Brazilian.


“I think he can cope with every style. He can adapt very well and is on the other side able to put his stamp on every game he plays in. His skills and abilities add to the strength of every team he has played in so far and made the teams harder to beat," he continued.


“I think (he is comparable to) Robinho and Douglas Costa, but it is always difficult to compare players with each other. He has this aggressiveness to his game that makes him want to win and go forward all the time in order to create something for his team and teammates.”
