Arsenal Considers Bernardo Silva Transfer
Arsenal are exploring a shock move for Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva as boss Mikel Arteta looks to add more creativity to his side.
Silva is one of the players whose future at the Etihad is in doubt following Jack Grealish’s £100million arrival.
Bernardo had been keen on a move to Spain, with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona both looking at signing him this summer.
But the financial situations at the La Liga clubs means they could struggle to afford him and that has opened the door to Arsenal.
Arteta knows Bernardo well after working with him at City during his days as Guardiola’s No.2.
And he has made a playmaker one of his top priorities during this window after Martin Odegaard’s loan spell from Real Madrid ended.
Nothing official from arsenal but a bid is imminent as the gunners looks to reenforce their midfield option ahead of the new season.
