British sport Radio station Talksports are reporting this afternoon that Arsenal are set to make a 15 million pounds move for Bayern Munich’s Luis Gustavo. It is reported that Gustavo wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer in other to stand a better chance of making Brazil’s 2014 world cup squad.
Gustavo has been on Arsenal’s radar for the last 2 transfer windows and was reportedly close to joining the Gunners last January but nothing came out of the rumours. He has however personally admitted he will be leaving Bayern Munich before the current summer transfer window closes as the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona and Mario Goetze from Dortmund will go a long way to further reduce his chances of first team football.
Signing Gustavo will make perfect sense for Arsenal who are in the market for a new Defensive midfielder as cover for Ageing Arteta. We have been linked to several defensive midfielders this summer but none have the experience of Luis Gustavo.
