Arsenal Submit Formal £13.5m Bid For Brazilian Defender

By on August 2, 2016

The summer transfer window is in full swing so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal have tabled a bid for Bruno Peres…

Arsenal have made an opening £13.5m offer for Brazilian defender Bruno Peres but Torino are holding out for a fee closer to their £17m asking price, according to the Daily Star.

Fans have been calling for Arsene Wenger to bring in a top class striker to compete with Olivier Giroud while a new centre-back is also a priority after Per Mertesacker was ruled out for five months with a knee injury.

However, it looks like the boss is also on the look-out for another full-back as Mathieu Debuchy has been strongly being linked with a move back to Bordeaux and the Sun reported over the weekend that Arsenal had made contact with Torino over the availability of Bruno Peres.

It appears we’ve now decided to formalise our interest as the Daily Star are citing reports coming from Italian outlet Toro News that claim Arsenal have now tabled an opening offer worth £13.5m for the 26-year-old.

Peres is understood to be keen on the idea of making a move to north London but we may have to dig a little deeper as the report indicates that Torino are demanding a figure closer to £17m for his signature.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Wenger will be prepared to up his offer but Peres would be a very useful addition to the squad if we manage to get a deal done and bring him to the Emirates this summer.

The Brazilian is predominantly a right-back so he’d provide stiff competition for Hector Bellerin but he’s also capable of playing on the left or even in midfield so his versatility will be a useful asset.

However, I think Arsene should be concentrating his efforts on signing a striker, centre-back and even a winger as they are positions we desperately need to strengthen before the start of the new Premier League season.

Calum Chambers and Rob Holding can both fill-in at right-back if needed so once we fill the priority positions, we can worry about bringing in another full-back during the closing stages of the window if Debuchy does depart.
