Breaking: Arsenal could seal deal for impressive winger this week - he wants to play under Arsene Wenger


Torino defender Bruno Peres wants to join Arsenal to feature in the Premier League and the Champions League, the Evening Standard has revealed.

Club president Urbano Cairo had a choice to make between the Brazilian and Nikola Maksimovic and decided to keep the Serbian at the club and to sell the 26-year-old for £17million.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already strengthened his defensive department with the signing of Rob Holding but he wants to add experience at the back and is determined to secure the services of Peres.

The Torino defender was one of the most impressive defenders in last season's Serie A campaign.

The Gunners have already made an initial £13million according to reports but the Italians will only sell if they receive an offer in the region of £17million.

If the transfer goes through, he would compete with young talent Hector Bellerin for a place on the right wing although it is clear multiple options are required in all positions if the Gunners are to fight for both the Premier League and the Champions League.
