Arsenal & Liverpool Register Interest In Signing South American Attacker
Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing Bernard and have been handed a boost after Inter Milan pulled out of the race to sign the Brazilian playmaker
The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal and Liverpool are linked with Bernard…
Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing Bernard and have been handed a boost after Inter Milan pulled out of the race to sign the Brazilian playmaker, according to a report in the Mirror.
Bernard has been a huge success since joining Shakhtar Donetsk from boyhood club Atlético Mineiro in 2013 with the winger providing 28 goals and 35 assists in 157 appearances over the past four years.
The 25-year-old has also earned 14 caps for the Brazilian national team and he’s constantly been linked with a move to one of Europe’s top clubs over the past few transfer windows.
It looks like this summer won’t be any different as the Mirror claim that Arsenal and Liverpool have both registered their interest in signing the South American attacker.
Arsene Wenger is under pressure to revamp his squad after a disappointing campaign and the Gunners could do with more depth in attack as they’re overly reliant on Mesut Ozil at times.
Bernard would certainly be a useful signing but the north Londoners will face stiff competition from Liverpool as it seems the Merseysiders are also showing a keen interest in signing the Brazilian star.
Jurgen Klopp failed to land a replacement for Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona in January and it looks like Bernard is one of the Liverpool managers prime targets.
The English duo have now been handed a major boost as the Mirror are citing a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport that claims Inter Milan have withdrawn their interest after baulking at Bernard’s wage demands.
The playmaker is out of contract in June and has failed to agree terms over a new deal at Shakhtar so he’s looking for a lucrative move this summer and a switch to the Premier League could now be on the cards.
