Arsenal handed boost as Newcastle star is keen on joining club with Brazilian connection

Arsenal are considering a move for Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes during the summer transfer window, according to the Sun.

The Brazilian international has a release clause of £100 million, but the Magpies could be open to selling him for less if clubs table an attractive offer that includes numerous add-on bonuses.

Manchester City are also keen on Guimaraes, but he loves the idea of joining a club with a Brazilian connection.

This factor hands Arsenal a boost in the race due to the presence of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Magalhaes at the club.

The former Lyon star also wants to play Champions League football regularly, and leaving Newcastle for the title-challenging Gunners would appeal to him.

While signing a new striker is the top priority for Arsenal, manager Mikel Arteta is open to adding another versatile midfielder to his squad.

The 26-year-old has bagged four goals and six assists in 31 Premier League appearances this term, and the Gunners could use his qualities to establish themselves as regular challengers for silverware.

The injury-prone Thomas Partey could be sold to raise funds while Jorginho’s future at the club is in doubt, with his deal running out at the end of the term.

Arsenal are in talks with the Italian over an extension, but nothing is guaranteed, and losing him or the Ghanaian will force the club into the market.

Guimaraes would be a solid addition to the Gunners’ midfield and is capable of improving them given what he brings to the table.
