Arsenal are lining up a £15m move for highly-rated Brazilian playmaker Paulo Henrique Ganso, according to the Daily Mail.

Reports earlier in the week claimed the Gunners were interested in the 22-year-old attacker and boss Arsene Wenger has been spotted watching the Brazil Olympic squad training at Arsenal’s London Colney training base, with Ganso among the players on show.

The Daily Mail claim that Wenger has sent scouts to run-the-rule over the Santos ace during Friday nights friendly between Brazil and Great Britain, with a view to launching a £15m move.

Wenger is keen to add an attack-minded midfielder to his squad this summer as he looks to fill the void left by Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, and Ganso is understood to be high on his wish-list after failing in his efforts to land the Chelsea-bound Oscar.

Ganso has become one of the most highly-rated prospects in South America after a string of impressive displays for Santos and has previously been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham.

The 22-year-old’s agent, Delcir Sonda, confirmed earlier this month that Ganso had played his last game for Santos after talks over a new deal broke down.

    As usual he said “Departures will determine who we buy”.
    We don’t expect new signing ….surely RVP leaves the club and finally AW will say Giroud can replace RVP the end!

    actually i watch the friendly game against GB last night….in fact that show and exposed GB how poor they are …they really need to work on their games…in fact the man of the match last night was NEYMAR ..indeed, he can play all wings even he can play CAM better than every other wings…cos he’s also a creative player as well…i like him so much , i would have wanted arsenal to buy these player, but everyone knows our policy of the club…we don’t spend big to get big thing like trophies…as for GANSO…? athough he came second half of the game…he was replaced by OSCA of chelsea…..meaning OSCAR is the first choice ahead of GANSO…although i haven’t seen him played before…the way i saw GANSO he’s good character, tall, touch the ball, not selfish,opening spaces for other, main looking at him i think he can shot far distance if i’m right of what i’m saying..hn! i think he plays a bit like KAKAS game and style of play…butone thing is is he another injury prone…?
    everyone knows how injury set us back last season….every match we played occurred injury except vanpersie and song, scezenny….the rest was injured last season…i think for my own personal opinion i would like it so much if AFFELLEY joins arsenal fc next season….although he’s also injury prone but, he’s far better than these players like OSCAR of chelsea and GANSO linked for arsenal….let us go for AFFELLEY and i think that ‘ll enable vanpersie to stay more season…good day arsenal fans ( i still think RAMSEY can definitely be arsenal hero and dependency player in future ahead ..)

    let arsenal go fast and buy BUTLAND that guy is so amazing if not for him ….another goals would have been exposed so much…he’s good talented and can push scezneey to place…he fast and confinece in his game and that is the kind of GP we really need…watch out for him in future….
