Arsenal are looking to improve their tram in the winter transfer window and there’ve been different players linked with the North London club.
According to an exclusive report from the Daily Star, there’s a certain central midfielder linked with the club of which many top level clubs are also looking to sign. The player in question is Brazilian international and Shakhtar star Fred but Arsenal are reported to be one of the front runners to secure the signature of the Brazil midfielder.
The British outlet have mentioned that Arsenal main problem in signing Fred would be Manchester United and therefore, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho are set to battle for the Samba star, who is valued at 30 million pounds ($40.7million).
The former Internacional player is a versatile talent, who is naturally a creative midfielder and Fred can effectively play as a defensive midfielder as well.
This season, he has played in 24 games so far for the Ukrainian side, netting two goals and providing the club with four assists.
He made his senior international debut for Brazil in 2014 and so far, he has registered 6 appearances for the Selecao. Fred is an highly-rated central midfielder who can slot into our lineup easily and replace the likes of poor Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey and could also serve a replacement for Santi Cazorla whose recovery date is yet unknown.
