£86M man ‘will be very exciting signing’ for Arsenal – Mikel Arteta told
Arsenal target Danilo could be an “exciting signing” for the club – believes journalist Pete O’Rourke.
Mikel Arteta and Edu have pretty much managed to get the transfer signings that they wanted this summer and are very happy with the squad that they currently have
However – adding a few more players to the side will improve their chances of getting back into the Champions League and adding another trophy to the cabinet – something that Arteta needs to keep his job this season
That has led to reports in the media over the past few weeks that Arsenal are ready to offer Danilo close to £150,000-a-week to make the move to the Emirates during the January transfer window
What has O’Rourke said?
He said to GIVEMESPORT: “Yeah, I think that’s what Arsenal will be hoping for. They’ve obviously scouted Danilo intensively; they see a real player in him and he has shone in the Brazilian league as well.
“So Arsenal will be hoping that if they can get a deal done for him, he can come and have the same impact as a number of other Brazilian players have had at Arsenal over the years.
“And if he’s half as good as Martinelli, I think this will be a real exciting signing for Arsenal fans.”
There are alot of questions about whether or not Danilo will be able to cope with the English game – especially coming from Palmeiras – it is a massive step up
But ArsenalFC must have watched him alot over the past few months – so there is obviously something about him that Edu really likes
Arsenal missed out on the player during the final days of the summer transfer window – but if they really want to sign the player – then they will get a deal done in the January window
