Arsenal looking towards Brazil for their next summer signing

Probably the most important area for Arsenal to reinforce is their defence and according to the latest reports, their search for a strong reliable defender has taken them to Brazil.

Arsenal has apparently contacted Brazilian side Gremio about a potential transfer for their defender Walter Kannemann.

This is not the first time that Arsenal has been linked with the Argentine, we actually covered the clubs interest in the defender back in May. At that time it was reported that we had tabled a €12 Million bid with additional bonuses

Kannemann actually has a release clause reported to be just £17 Million, so it will not be too much of a jump for Arsenal to meet that fee.

There is Premier League competition for the 28-year-olds signature from Wolves and so the road is not completely clear for Arsenal but the player is definitely within reach if the will is there to pay the release clause.

I have only seen him on video and cannot really judge him but the fact that Inter Milan and Sampdoria were previously interested in Kannemann tells me that he must be rated in some quarters.

It should also be noted that this one has not gone away which indicates that Arsenal are genuinely interested.

    Admin posts his rumours, Kev posts his, then they go at each other in some kind of battle for credibility…. in the end, one or even neither of you might end up right, but that doesn’t mean you should be berated for sharing….. to you both, keep the transfer news coming, it’s what keeps us engaged in the absence of the games, and we’re all free to wish and speculate, so…. kudos to you two

      The problem with kev is he claims that his rumours are facts. I mean it’s Arsenal we are talking about, a very secretive club to say the least. As an illustration, recently I read how Dick Law signed Ozil for us. Arsenal arranged a special flight for Dick Law so he could watched the derby in director’s box, in order to not arouse any suspicion from Levy and media. In the end they fooled everyone, I wonder how kev predicted that.

    If kroenke adhere to Raul here is my team:
    Aubameyang Lacazette Pepe
    Fekir Ozil
    Torreira
    Tierney Maguire Holding Bellerin
    Leno

    1. ThirdManJW says:

      We’re bad enough as it is defensively, and you’ve pretty much picked a front 5! Torreira on his own midfield? Ozil starting? Maguire?

      So many questions.

      1. Uthgunner says:

        But with that team we can change Ozil for a more defensive player when we are playing against a stronger opposition. Just imagine not solely relying on Ozil’s creativity when we play teams that park the bus.

    I hope we are not leaning to the South American market too much. I think we want to buy from Europe, but it’s a tough market.
    Sky are broadcasting all of our preseason, so it will be interesting to see the transfer and on pitch growth

    Constant rumours,YAWN! Actual news, yes please! But actual news is exceedingly rare, hence constant mind numbing and almost always also FAKE rumours abound. For those, excluding me, who love them.
