French top division football club Bordeaux have made an offer to sign Brazilian winger Wellington Silva from Rio de Janeiro giants Fluminense, according to media reports.

The move hinges on the wishes of English Premier League club Arsenal, who hold 55 percent of the 24-year-old’s economic rights, ESPN Brasil said on Wednesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Silva has made 48 appearances and scored eight goals for Fluminense since rejoining his original club from Bolton Wanderers last July.

The former Brazil Under-21 international was signed by Arsenal in 2011 but failed to make a first-team appearance for the London outfit.

After unimpressive loan spells at six different clubs, Silva returned to Fluminense last July.
