In a news that may delight Arsenal fans, Daily star is reporting that Arsenal are set to beat both Tottenham and Manchester city to the signing of highly rated Benfica star Eduardo Salvio. The paper is reporting that although Arsenal may eventually try to sign Eduardo Salvio’s team mate Nicolas Gaitan but the 23 years old is their prime target and are ready to spend as much as 30 Million pounds on him.
Just 1 week ago, it was reported that Tottenham were the closest to sign the promising winger after been turned down by Atletico Mineiro star Bernard. However, it is also been reported that Benfica are looking for close to 40 million for their youngster and should this be the case, knowing Wenger for who he is, he may end up just been interesting and not signing him.
This is very possible considering the fact that Manchester City are also interested and have enough money to blow the gunners out of water should they be keen in signing Eduardo Salvio.
The gunners are also interested in Wayne Rooney and are set to send in a bid of 40 million pounds for Suarez after losing out on the signing of Higuain due to Real Madrid’s antics.
