Real Madrid have allegedly identified the 21-year-old as an ideal long term replacement for contract rebel Sami Khedira, but Arsenal are looking to hijack the deal and bring the youngster to the Premier League.

The Gunners are currently struggling domestically, and are off to their worst start in history after 13 matches. They may however be able to offer Silva more playing time than he would be likely to get at the Bernabeu.

Arsenal have been crying out for a defensive midfielder for years now, and the young South American could be the player to fill the void.

At such a young age however, it is a lot to ask for him to make the step up in one of Europe’s top leagues. Arsenal fans would probably feel more secure with a more experienced and proven midfielder, but Wenger may be willing to take a gamble on the Cruzeiro star.
