From Italy: Arsenal plot move to sign Bernard

Share

Arsenal have done few smart businesses this summer.

They have addressed the right back issue by signing Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle. They have added a world class player in Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.

Furthermore, the Gunners solved their goal keeping problems by adding World Cup hero David Ospina. And now are on the look out for one more top signing before the window shuts.

Bernard Main From Italy: Arsenal plot move to sign Brazilian winger

Rumours ran wild that Arsenal were keen to sign Chilean forward Edu Vargas. The Gunners were hoping to recreate the Sanchez-Vargas partnership that stole the show during the World Cup in Brazil.

However, latest report suggest that Vargas is off to London, but not to sign with the Gunners rather to join newly promoted club QPR.

Having missed out on the target (debatable, whether he was actually a target for the Gunners) the North Londoners have shifted their attention elsewhere.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal are plotting a move to sign the highly rated Brazilian winger Bernard, who plays for Shakhtar Donetsk. 

The 21-year-old winger is a regular member of the Brazil national team and has played in the recently concluded World Cup as well.

He will represent a top signing no doubt, but one cannot help but think, is he the right type of player Arsenal need at the moment? The dosh could be used elsewhere.

  1. not another winger,more crosses for the invisible centre forward.

  2. WHY, what for we need another Winger??? We require a TRUE FINISHER upfront a quality Centre Back, a quality Defensive Midfielder and a Proper Left Back who is not as injury prone as Gibbs.

  3. Why does it seems that Arsenal are always plotting ? Do the board members sit around the table come up with schemes to get players while other football teams just buy them ? It all seems a bit like Guy Fawkes to me (and he lost out at the end as well).

  4. Bernard is a decent Brazilian player and play maker. To acquire him is a good addition to the Arsenal squad. I hope the deal to sign him will be done before the transfer window closes.

    • Beside Bernard, the fans wants to see a better replacement to Thomas Verms central defence position after selling him to Barca.

      Again, w the fan want a special proven striker we can rely on, no the likes of Giroud & Sanogo

  5. Just 2 or 3 more signing we do.

  6. Arsenal always plot but do not get while other get it done. What the board is doing???????

  7. Arsen if u are serious minded and aspire so much for silverware,get us a worldclass striker dat giroud can learn frm and a d midfielder dat can do d dirtyjob then d p.league is ours.In arsen we trust
