Former Arsenal player Julio Baptista has suggested that Arsenal make a move for Neymar this summer.
The Brazilian believes his fellow countryman may be the key to completing Arsenal’s squad.
“I think Neymar is comfortable at PSG, but maybe the best move for him is to create a new atmosphere at a new club – maybe a club that supports him and gives him all the confidence that he needs. He doesn’t have that at PSG. The fans don’t like him a lot and maybe it is time to move on and try something different. Why not?” he told Goal.
“Arsenal is one of the best clubs in Europe. We know that the last eight or so years, Arsenal have not produced their best or been as competitive. But now, with Arteta, Arsenal have something different.
“They have started to construct something powerful. Why not? Maybe this could be the key. In Brazil we say that you have the house, you have everything, and you just need the key to open it.
“Maybe Neymar is the key to open and complete everything at Arsenal. He is an incredible player.”
However, whilst Neymar would no doubt improve Arsenal, the finances involved in a deal may prove difficult for the Gunners.
Neymar still has several years left on his PSG deal and the French champions are unlikely to let him go cheap.
It is also understood that Neymar is taking home €56.3m per year in wages currently, which is a huge amount for Arsenal to cough up.
