Arsenal have won the race to sign Chelsea wonderkid Domingos Quina, according to The Telegraph.
The Telegraph reports that the 16-year-old had been on the radar of multiple Premier League clubs after not committing to a scholarship at Stamford Bridge.
He cannot sign a professional deal until the age of 17, but The Telegraph understands that any move to the Gunners would come with a guaranteed contract.
Attacking midfielder Quina was born in Guinea Bissau but grew up in Portugal, and has played for Portugal Under-17s, including recently against England.
Quina joined Chelsea from Benfica as a 13-year-old and would represent a coup for Arsenal, who have fallen behind their rivals in recruiting the best young talent.
The Daily Mail adds that Quina was wanted by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as both Manchester clubs, but could sign for Arsenal in the next 48 hours.
Quina, who plays primarily as a number 10, is an exciting dribbler whose best attributes are his speed, his ability to beat a man and his shooting, according to the Daily Mail.
