Despite earlier worries that Arsenal would be stuck with Wellington Silva following his failed medical at Bordeaux, Arseblog News understands that the Brazilian
remains a will be re-registered as a Fluminense player.
The attacker was part of what would have been a protracted deal in which the Gunners activated a buy-back clause to then sell him on to the French side, however it appears to have been dependent on the player completing all the requirements.
Wellington has now travelled back to Brazil where he will seek treatment for the ‘inflamed pubis’/groin strain that saw him fail the test.
Quite what happens after that remains to be seen, but whatever it is, it’s not Arsenal’s problem.
The Brazilian club have since confirmed that Wellington will be their player in a statement on their website.
