Arsenal have made an approach for Fluminense youngster Matheus Martinelli. [@geglobo]
Balogun is so excited with the new development and wants to announce his renewal in a big way, he has already started compiling a video of his best moments at Arsenal since he joined the club at the age of eight. [@Editor_ANS]
Finances have certainly played an understandable part in Balogun's decision, but http://football.london understands that it is assurances of being included in Arteta's future first team plans that has made the difference. [@ChrisWheatley_ ]
Martinelli, 19, has been followed closely by Arsenal scouts and Arsenal have recently enquired about his situation. The central midfielder has a release clause of €40m.
