FC Porto midfielder openly flirts with the idea of joining Arsenal

Arsenal has been linked with a move for a number of players ahead of the next transfer window.

One position that the Gunners may look to strengthen is their midfield.

They have been linked with a move for a number of midfielders, with Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey appearing to be their top target.

They have also been linked with a move for FC Porto’s Danilo Pereira, and the midfielder also seems interested in working with Mikel Arteta.

To some fans, Arteta has done a great job since he became Arsenal’s manager and the Spaniard will look to build on the fine start to his managerial career that he has had so far.

Pereira was speaking about the Gunners recently and he hailed Arteta for the work he has done at the Emirates before appearing to make a come-and-get-me plea by claiming that he would do a good job if he plays for the Spaniard.

Pereira told Stats Perform News as quoted by Sun Sports: “I think he [Arteta] is doing a really, really, good job there.

“He is a really good coach who started as the second coach at [Manchester] City, so he has a little experience and Arsenal play very good football and I think he is doing very well there.

“He is a Spanish coach, he is a bit similar to Portuguese coaches, they also want to play with the ball and improve with the ball, so I think he is a good coach.

“The style I think I can fit there, the way he plays also thinking on the ball, the team always has to be together – I think it is a good way to play.”

  1. he must be desperate and no offers.

    He got a point tho; Arteta was an assistant coach this season.

    How can he possibly Arsenal coach without being one and no experience at all as a head coach even in chamionship or at least U23?

    A tricky silent Kroenke cheapest option to take our hearts as idiots.

    But Arteta was desperate enough and feeling too big to be assistant and not get that it is why City was clear to him; not expect the job woth no experoence.

    Lampard went and learned before to risk his club…We are were Arteta level is, mid table.

  2. Mogunna I think you are a little myopic here with the statement, ” we are where a
    Arteta level is- mid table”. We’ve had three coaches this season and you say this? To be more blunt , you are a bit cruel and disrespectful to Arteta. Why not wait till he manages a full season before you judge!

    We are not where Arteta level is, rather we are where THE PLAYERS LEVEL are.

    1. Arteta has done well with the materials on ground. Look at that defensive formation against Man City. He has raise the standard above where he met the time.
      Remember when he came here as a player from Everton, he took a pay cut. He’s Arsenal through and through. I not deviating. He has improved the team a little that we are now even hoping for a cup win next week.

  3. Arteta our boss, is doing a great work, let’s give him time and Arsenal will be back to the game.
