Arsenal transfer target Bruno Guimaraes has previously revealed that he would like to play in the Premier League amid links to the Gunners in the January window
Arsenal’s loss to Liverpool on Thursday night furth showcased their glaring holes in midfield.
Youngster Albert Sambi Lokonga struggled against the experienced Fabinho and Jordan Henderson before Thomas Partey’s disastrous cameo saw the Gunners finish the game with ten men.
Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, but some reports from Italy have claimed that the Old Lady will only allow the 25-year-old to leave if they can first secure a replacement this month.
Another name that has been mooted as a potential target is Lyon maestro Bruno Guimaraes, with the aforementioned Juventus also said to be keen on signing the talented Brazilian, and Football Audit understands that any deal involving Guimaraes and a Premier League side is likely to see Kia Joorabchian involved as an intermediary.
Still, the 23-year-old has previously revealed that Arsenal are a more attractive destination at this moment in time given his desire to play in the English top-flight.
“Arsenal approached my agent, but there was no offer. My aim, and I made it clear to Juninho, is to win a title with Lyon,” Guimaraes revealed to Globo via GFFN back in August 2021.
“The fans have not had one for a long time. We have the Coupe de France, the Europa League and the league. It is difficult with the level that PSG are at, but anything can happen.
“My aim is to win a title here [Lyon], but I have never hidden my desire to play in the Premier League.”
However, time is running out for technical director Edu, with just 11 days left before the January transfer window slams shut.
