Report: Arsenal Make Contact with Agents of ‘Huge’ £80m Premier League Player Over Prospective Summer Move

Arsenal are poised for a busy summer transfer window as Mikel Arteta seeks to bolster his squad for the upcoming season.

Despite still being in contention for the Premier League title, Arsenal’s chances took a hit with Manchester City’s victory over Tottenham, leaving Arteta’s team relying on a miracle on the final day.

Nonetheless, Arsenal have shown clear signs of improvement this season, marking significant progress since Arteta assumed control in 2019.

Potential changes in midfield loom as uncertainty surrounds the futures of players like Thomas Partey, Fabio Vieira, and Albert Sambi Lokonga.

According to a report by CBS journalist Ben Jacobs, Arsenal have reached out regarding one of the Premier League’s top midfielders.

It’s been revealed that the Gunners have initiated contact with the representatives of Newcastle United’s standout midfielder, Bruno Guimaraes, regarding a possible move in the summer transfer window.

What Has Ben Jacobs Said About Arsenal and Bruno Guimaraes?

Jacobs wrote on CaughtOffside: “Newcastle also don’t want to lose Bruno Guimaraes, but the decision could be taken out of their hands if someone triggers his £100million release clause, which is valid between late May and the end of June.

“As long as the clause is active, Newcastle are going to simply point to its value, but it’s understood offers exceeding £80million could be entertained should Guimaraes wish to leave for a Champions League club.

“It should be stressed, Guimaraes is happy at Newcastle, but it’s also true that both Manchester City and Arsenal have made contact with his camp.

“Manchester City are the most active of the suitors. Arsenal appreciate Guimaraes, but have no intention to trigger his clause meaning they would only enter the race if the price drops.

“PSG have also considered Guimaraes but decided against moving forward this summer, and will instead focus on trying to land Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva.”

Bruno Guimaraes Would Be a Dream Signing for Arsenal

Bruno’s prowess in both the Premier League and the Brazil national team is undeniable. A player of exceptional quality, he has yet to reach his peak and would undoubtedly be a remarkable addition to Arsenal’s squad.

“He’s such an important player and he’s done so well since he joined the club,” Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said after Bruno penned his new contract in October 2023.

“He has been a huge success since he’s been here so I just hope that he can continue in that vein and carry on his success with us.

“I think he epitomises the recent success we’ve had. He’s put in so many good displays, he’s very consistent and he’s got a great personality off the pitch as well.”

Newcastle face tight constraints regarding Financial Fair Play regulations this summer, possibly necessitating the sale of key players to strengthen their squad.

Consequently, Arsenal might seize the opportunity, albeit amidst stiff competition and budgetary constraints as they prioritize strengthening various positions.
