The Metro reported yesterday that Arsenal are looking at a deal for wantaway 25 year old Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo. According to the story – Arsenal could potentially bid up to £8m for the player who has two years left to run on his contract. The report suggests that whilst Bayern Munich would like to keep hold of him for another season – they will consider offers for him if their valuation is met.
Ok – whilst the story was reported in the Metro (Don’t groan) - this isnt the first time that we have been linked with a move for Gustavo. And whilst Gustavo on paper may not be the most glamorous of signings – it’s worth noting that he can play in a number of different positions – centre half, full back and as a defensive midfielder meaining that he could well become a quality addition to the squad thanks to his versatility (not to mention that the price being mentioned could well work out to be a bargain..)
Gustavo made 36 appearences for Bayern last year scoring 4 goals. He also has 10 caps for Brazil and isnt the only Brazilian that we are being linked with at the moment.
