OL: Arsenal drops Bruno Guimaraes

Bruno Guimaraes made a good copy with Olympique Lyonnais against PSG, and the Brazilian player is interested in several clubs in the transfer window.

Juninho signed a superb blow by picking up Bruno Guimaraes in Brazil almost two years ago, the midfielder quickly showing good things in the jersey of Olympique Lyonnais. Even if he suffered a little less well, the Brazilian international has regained his best level and we have seen him again against Paris Saint-Germain, Marco Verratti can attest to this. Obviously, the level displayed by Bruno Guimaraes has not escaped several European clubs, including Arsenal. Mikel Arteta and the Gunners quickly wanted to move on this file during the transfer window, contacting the Lyon leaders to find out if a transfer of the 24-year-old midfielder was possible as of this month of January. And according to the tabloids, OL’s response would have been positive, but with a check for 40 million euros, while Guimaraes still has two and a half years of contract with Jean-Michel Aulas’ club.

Arthur Melo rather than Bruno Guimaraes at Arsenal?

According to the Sun, considering that the arrival of Bruno Guimaraes was too complicated to implement during this winter transfer window, Arsenal would have finally thrown in the towel, giving up on bringing in the midfielder from Olympique Lyonnais. Instead of the latter, Mikel Arteta would have set his sights on Arthur Melo, the Brazilian player of Juventus. So far the Premier League club have not advanced their pawns with the Italian leaders, but according to Fabrizio Romano the Gunners would like to secure Arthur Melo’s loan until the end of the current season with an option purchase.
