Arsenal approach Lyon over possibility of signing highly-rated midfielder

Posted by

According to recent reports, Premier League side Arsenal have opened a line of communication with French side Lyon over the possibility of signing midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

That’s according to a recent report from Goal, who claims the Gunners are interested in the Brazilian midfielder.

Guimaraes, 23, only joined Lyon during the winter window of 2020.

Following an £18m move from South American side Club Athletico Paranaense, the talented 23-year-old has gone on to feature in 46 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to five goals, along the way.

However, despite still having three years left on his contract with Lyon, Goal believe Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have the central midfielder ‘on their radar’.

Interestingly, the outlet note that the Gunners have had a long-standing in Guimaraes, dating back to when he joined Lyon.

However, although the club would prefer to retain their star midfielder’s services, given the post COVID-era football teams are forced to operate in, they’re prepared to allow him to leave for £50m.

  1. Who are we (Arsenal) really wanting to sign?
    Today it is James Maddison, tomorrow it is Martin Odegaard, the day after tomorrow it will be Houssam Auoar, now it is the likes of Guamareas, Laturo Martinez, Yves Bissouma, Renato Sanchez, Timmy Abraham and the list is still counting as the tranfer window is gradually going to an end. Who are we really signing and who are we selling.
    Those that are available for selling, no club is really interested in them.
