The 25-year-old is also a better true winger than both Jesus and Richarlison, possessing more flair and capacity for moments of individual brilliance. That could have made him perfect for Spurs whose prospective understudy for Harry Kane will presumably spend more time featuring out wide while the England captain remains fit.
Arsenal may also attempt to hunt down a natural wide option this summer to provide extra competition for Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli. Nicolas Pepe is expected to make way, leaving space for new talent to come in and try to shake up the balance of power under Arteta.
Age is naturally not a factor when considering swoops for either one of the Brazilian trio, given that they were all born within five months of each other.
