It looks like the impatient and increasingly worried ranks of Arsenal fans might not have to wait too much longer before we find out who will be Arsene Wenger´s second signing of the summer after the Switzerland international midfield star Granit Xhaka.
There has also been the Nigerian wonderkid Kelechi Nwakali but that was a deal done a while back and we probably won’t see him in the Arsenal first team for some time. The second signing that I am talking about seems likely to be the young Brazilian forward Gabriel Barbosa according to a report in the Express.
There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the talented 19-year old and the report reveals that Brazilian broadcaster Radio Bandeirantes claimed that a Premier League club has just made a transfer bid of ·15 million which is enough to activate a release clause in his contract with Brazilian club Santos.
Surely it must be the Gunners and Wenger that have done this, if it is true of course, and you would think that we are not going to have another Jamie Vardy situation here, although Santos was the club that managed to persuade the Barcelona star Neymar that he would be better off staying with them an extra year.
It sounds like an exciting move for Arsenal but would that be the only new striker we signed or has Wenger got other irons in the fire?
