Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus speaks about Palmeiras Endrick on ESPN
“I’ve been following Endrick a lot. During the time I was training at the Academy when I was coming back from injury, Zé Roberto introduced us. Then I saw him on the field… Wow, he’s a star! Phenomenon!” he told ESPN.
“I’m really rooting for him. I think Palmeiras is doing well to put him in training and take him to games.”
Should Arsenal make a move for Endrick and get the Brazilian forward ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United?
Endrick, who was born in Brazil, began playing football at the age of four. Douglas Sousa, his father, posted his son’s goals on YouTube and sought interest from major Brazilian clubs.
After his father was unable to feed him, Endrick vowed to become a professional footballer in order to help his family. Before being hired as a cleaner by Palmeiras, his father was unemployed.
