Our resident Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news filtering in from Correio da Manha via Goal – with the media outlet suggesting that the Gunners have had a bid rejected for Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira.
Pereira, 24, is a key player for the Portuguese giants and his role in the middle of the park for the team is integral to their success.
It seems that Arsene Wenger is keen on luring the player who has a £31.7 million release clause to the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, but the’ve had their initial bid rejected, according to Correrio de Manha.
The Gooners over by the bar here in the Tavern admit they don’t know too much about Danilo, and feel the club should pinpoint their attentions on Granit Xhaka, with them all impressed with his performances for Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.
Our landlord admits he’s seen Danilo on several occasions this season, and says he would be a perfect partner for the likes of Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin.
