2 Brazilian Stars Arsenal Could Sign in January Thanks to Edu's Connections

  • Arsenal could make a double swoop for two Brazilian superstars in January
  • The Gunners chief Edu is believed to be pulling some strings to further bolster the squad with Brazilian signings
  • Mikel Arteta’s side have made a strong start to the season and currently sit top of the Premier League

Arsenal could be set for a very busy January as the club’s chief Edu is reportedly prepared to make use of his Brazilian ties once again.

The North London outfit already enjoys a string of Brazilian talent including summer signing Gabriel Jesus, defender Gabriel dos Santos Magalhães and winger Martinelli, who also coincidentally bears the name Gabriel.

After an initial rocky start to life as Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta seems to have finally cracked the code at the club, and they are considered genuine title contenders, eight games into the new season.

The two Brazilians were transfer targets in the summer and according to CaughtOffside, Arsenal is still interested in the pair.

Football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also spoke on the possibility of a double swoop for the pair, saying:

“Danilo is one of the players that Arsenal have tracked during the summer but it was never close to being completed, Palmeiras wanted more than €35m (£30m) for him.

Aston Villa did their best to retain the services of Douglas Luiz in the summer, but Arsenal are not willing to give up in their pursuit.

The West Midlands club might however regret not selling Luiz, as his contract expires at the end of the season, with no deal in sight.
