Arsenal target £15m Luiz Gustavo as Bayern Munich look to trim their squad [Sunday Mirror]
- July 20, 2013
The Sunday Mirror have picked up on rumours which have been floating about online for a couple of days now, that Arsenal are tracking Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo.
Matt Law has claimed that Arsenal hope to sign the Brazilian for £15 million.
Arsene Wenger has added Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo to his summer hit list… German sources claim that Bayern are willing to listen to offers for Gustavo after completing the signing of Thiago Alcantara.
Unsurprisingly the Mirror’s article fails to include quotes from Gustavo’s agent Roger Wittmann from the past 24 hours, which said:
There’s nothing to it [transfer rumours linking Gustavo to Arsenal], I can’t take it seriously anymore. Guardiola only knows him for one day, he’s never seen him before.
With that said, Bayern’s midfield is somewhat on the full side at the moment, with the Bavarians currently employing Ribery, Martinez, Robben, Shaqiri, Gotze, Gustavo, Schweinsteiger, Can, Kroos and now Thiago.
