Arsenal are lining up an £8million bid for Bayern Munich defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo, according to the Metro.

The report claims boss Arsene Wenger is looking to press ahead with plans to bring in some big name signings this summer and as well as targetting strikers such Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain, the Frenchman is believed to be keen on strengthening his midfield with a defensive-minded ball-winner understood to be a key area of concern.

The Metro suggest Wenger’s prime target is Munich’s utility man Gustovo, with the German champions said to be ready to cash in following the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona, and we’re now lining up an £8m bid to try and lure the 25-year-old Brazilian international to the Premier League.

I’ve been a huge fan of Gustavo’s for some time and I think he’d be an excellent addition to the squad. His versatility would be a huge asset but his primary position would be to shield the back four – an area we’ve needed to strengthen since selling Alex Song last summer.

The Metro claim we could face competition from Wolfsburg and Corinthians for his signature, but it’s though the midfielder is keen to remain in Europe and preferably play for a side in the Champions League, so Arsenal should have a good chance of being able to snap him up if we end up making a formal move.

Gustavo still has two years left on his Bayern contract and while this report suggests we’re ready to offer £8m, I think Munich may hold out for more, but I’d pay up to £15m for him as I really do think he could make a huge impact at the Emirates.
