Arsenal & Chelsea Battling To Sign Brazilian Midfielder
London duo Arsenal and Chelsea and battling it out to sign out-of-favour Bayern Munich midfielder Gustavo, who’s been told he can find a new club this summer.
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 and Chelsea are linked with a move for Gustavo.
London duo Arsenal and Chelsea and battling it out to sign out-of-favour Bayern Munich midfielder Gustavo, according to reports in Germany.
Gustavo slipped down the pecking order last season following the arrival of Javi Martinez and was limited to just 22 Bundesliga appearances – many of which came from the bench.
It seems his chances of first team football under new coach Pep Guardiola have taken another hit following the signings of Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona and Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund, with the exciting duo adding to the array of talent already on offer at the Allianz Arena.
German publication Bild claim Gustavo has now been told he’s surplus to requirements and is free to find a new club, with Arsenal and Chelsea understood to keen to lure him to the Premier League this summer, although the London pair are going to face stiff competition from Wolfsburg.
The 26-year-old is a traditional defensive midfielder but he is also capable of playing anywhere across the backline, so his versatility would be a key asset to his new team. Arsenal are believed to be in the market for a holding midfield player with Arsene Wenger yet to properly replace the departed Alex Song.
New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is also on the look out for a possible replacement for John Obi Mikel who’s been strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
