Gunners To Beat Spurs & Liverpool To Brazilian After Agreeing £21m Deal

By on July 20, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal appear to be closing in on the signing of Bernard.

Arsenal are set to beat rivals Tottenham and Liverpool to the signing of Bernard after agreeing a £21m deal with Atletico Mineiro for the Brazilian starlet, according to reports today.

Bernard has emerged as one of South America’s most promising young talents and his reputation increase further after an excellent showing at this summers Confederations Cup where he helped Brazil lift the trophy with some eye-catching displays.

The Daily Star are citing reports emanating from Brazil that suggest Arsenal have now sealed a £21m deal with Mineiro, while the Daily Mail are also suggesting the Gunners have beaten off stiff competition from Tottenham and Liverpool to land the highly-talented winger.

Brazilian reporter Alexandre Oliviera aas been quoted by the Star as saying:

“Atletico Mineiro’s Bernard is going to join Arsenal.”

The newspaper suggests Arsene Wenger hopes the signing of Bernard will kick start his summer spending spree with a big-name striker understood to be next on his agenda. The 20-year-old is a pacey attacker who plays mostly on the winger but can also play in an attacking role in the centre, so he’ll provide Wenger with plenty of options if these reports prove to be accurate.

However, as yet there is nothing official coming from Arsenal so we should continue to treat this news as speculation until told otherwise.

    £21m for Bernard, £40m for Rooney/Suarez and a bid in the region of £30m for the Fab if Barca decide to sell, that’s a lot of money or is it all media tosh, one tends to think so.

    We should sign up David Dein before anyone else, then we might actually sign someone. It appears Arsenes broken the zip on his wallet as well as his coat! The whole Cesar thing is laughable if true, and we’re quibbling over 15000 a week.
