Arsene Wenger is interested in signing Brazilian midfielder Walace Souza Silva as he looks for midfield reinforcements ahead of next season.
The club is reportedly interested in shuffling its midfield this summer and as many as three midfielders could leave the club at the end of the season.
Following those reports, the club has been linked with a host of midfielder’s across Europe and now Transfer Market Web via the Metro claims Arsenal are interested in Gremio defensive midfielder Walace Souza Silva.
The midfielder who is being touted as the next Gilberto Silva has reportedly impressed Arsenal scouts with his showings and could be subjected to a serious offer from the club.
However, Walace, doesn’t look like he is the midfielder needed to improve the first team this summer as he will likely find it difficult to get a work permit in England.
The midfielder doesn’t have a European Union passport and with the recent FA rules in getting work permit, the club would struggle to get one for the midfielder.
The midfielder would reportedly cost as much as £6.5m as his current club wants to get the highest possible fee for the midfielder.
Fiorentina and Benfica are also monitoring the midfielder’s situation and would rival Arsenal for his signature at the end of the season.
