According to The Sun, Arsenal are ready to make a bid for Corinthians midfielder Maycon this month.
What’s the Story?
Following the departure of Francis Coquelin to Valencia, Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his midfield options, and has made Corinthians star Maycon his number one target.
Reports suggest that Arsenal have been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old for a number of years, with scouts feeling he is now ready to make the move to Europe.
Maycon’s current employers Corinthians are thought value their star man at £9million, a fee which Italian club Napoli are also willing to pay for the defensive midfielder.
