The rumours surrounding Arsenal’s move for Luiz Gustavo are certainly growing.
On Friday, Bayern Munich’s Brazilian midfielder told Bayerischer Rundfunk Radio: ”I believe that the English Premier League is of top quality and Arsenal definitely stand out … I love their style of play and I have been watching them for some time now … However, like yourself I do not know what is happening on the other side at this moment.”
And on Saturday, some pretty spurious sources, including the Metro, claimed Arsenal had sealed a 14 million pound deal for the 26-year-old.
On Sunday, tomorrow’s edition of the Sun suggest Arsenal have bid 18 million pounds for Luiz Gustavo.
The Brazilian had reportedly been close to sign for Wolfsburg once it became clear that he was not wanted by new Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola.
Chelsea have also been linked with Gustavo but it feels like Arsenal are currently the front runners as Arsene Wenger finally looks set to splash some cash this summer.
