But he’s still regarded as one of the brightest prospects in American football and is being tipped for a move to Europe eventually. With Jesus seen as the main striker at the Emirates, Ferreira could potentially come in as a cheap back-up to fill in when needed.
Manchester United seem to be leading the race for Cody Gakpo’s signature, particularly following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit. But Arsenal will also fancy their chances and Arteta’s project at the Emirates may prove too enticing to turn down.
