Shocking: Arsenal in Line to Sign a Brazilian Striker

Finally, the Arsenal fans will be delighted that there is at least still some hope for them left in the summer transfer window. After all the players that various rival clubs have been linked with, the Gunners have finally made their move on deadline day it seems now. Sometimes it feels as if things just happen though at other times it can be safe to presume that Arsene Wenger does this intentionally at the last minute.

Finally, it has been accepted by the club, the manager and the player himself that Olivier Giroud is not the man to spearhead a title charge and he needs support. After these speculations came in, it was further confirmed that the French boss was spotted on a plane to Paris on Monday night.

This once again got the fans excited, who were hopeful that a deal for Edinson Cavani, or Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot would be completed soon. Further, The Guardian added that the Premier League giants might instead look to sign Gabriel Barbosa now, an 18-year-old striking sensation who has been making a name for himself in Santos.

The 19-year-old superstar has already rejected an offer from Turkish side Fenerbahce and could be the man to buy if Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuaín refuses to move to the Emirates.
