Transfer Rumours - Gustavo
Posted on November 8th, 2013 at 3:16 PM
There is large speculation in the media at the moment that Arsenal are very close to signing Brazilian international Luiz Gustavo from Bayern Munch.
The fee is rumoured to be around the £14m mark and it would seem that just personal terms are left to agree before the move can be finalised.
Gustavo is a clever defensive midfielder, one that will put the tackles in and really get back to help the defense out.
If you've not seem him in action before then this video will give you a clear idea of his playing style:
It's likely that with Fellaini most probably heading to Manchester United and Capoue having been signed by Tottenham that this rumour does have some foundation, the defensive midfield role is one that's been absent at Arsenal for some time now, possibly since the departure of Alex Song and the arrival of Gustavo at Arsenal would be a huge positive.
Do your magic Wenger!
