Arsenal hope to get a chance to seal January signing of Brazilian

Matheus Cunha has caught the attention of Arsenal, and the Gunners have made him a target to sign in the January transfer window.

The attacker plays for Atletico Madrid, and the Brazil national team and the Gunners have been watching him for some time now.

With Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson injured, they seem to have prioritised buying a new attacker to supplement their current options in the next transfer window.

Transfer expert, Dean Jones, has now revealed Mikel Arteta’s men are considering adding Cunha to their squad.

He tells Give Me Sport:

“If you’re Arsenal and looking to make the right decisions that define a title challenge, nothing can be dismissed or given up on lightly. That’s why they’ll have their eye on situations like this one.

“They’re biding their time is how I would read it. They’re waiting to see if there’s an opportunity here.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Cunha is still just 23, even though his name has been around European football for some time now, and we expect him to deliver if he moves to the Emirates.

He is yet to score a league goal this term and scored just 6 in 29 appearances last season, but that could change at the Emirates, considering Atleti plays a defensive style of football.

  1. Nah not quite what we are looking for, but he will be cheap maybe £15 mil, but should be left for the Evertonians.

    1. For a striker he has to be sharper than what he is, ready to take his opportunity the minute he gets it, in my opinion he seems to regress.

      If you are an up coming striker, Athletic Madrid can’t be the place to apply your trade, you will be held back.

      The Madrid clubs in my opinion are a grave yard for talents, only the very best survive, and survival some time means finding away out through the back door.

  2. Just an average striker. 2 assists in 11 games. Previous statistics aren’t encouraging either. Is it because he’s from Brazil? Doesn’t make mush sense to me.
    If any new striker is not an upgrade to Nketiah, Then no use

  3. Why not go for Marcus thuram, he has 6 months remaining on his contract and will provide more goals than nketiah and cunha, from his performances at the world cup he’s playing style is similar to jesus but with an aerial threat.
