Arsenal midfield target Bruno Guimaraes has spoken out for the first time on speculation connecting him with a January move to the PL.
The Brazilian midfielder has appeared as a target for Arsenal, who are looking to bolster Mikel Arteta’s roster this month as he bids to challenge for a Top 4 spot.
Guimaraes has developed into an important player for Athletico Paranaense since joining the Brazilian side in 2018 and is valued at £21 million.
Last week, it was reported that Gunners’ technical director Edu was due to hold talks in the capital with representatives of Guimaraes, and now the Brazilian has responded to the transfer speculations.
Bruno told SporTV: ‘What I asked my agents was that the transfer is good for me and for Athletico Paranaense. I know that clubs are in talks… it’s difficult to choose. They are all great teams.’
As well as targeting Bruno, Arsenal have also been heavily linked with a January swoop for Ligue 1 giants PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa. d
