Arsenal Launch Offer to Sign South American Star

We have seen a lot of players linked with Arsenal in the current window and even though none of the reported moves, except for that of Gabriel Martinelli, has become successful, another one has shown up.

In this one, the Metro claims that the Gunners have switched attention to one of the world’s best left-backs, Marcelo.

With Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal in that position, Unai Emery’s squad still lacks something vital. While the former is not as sharp as he should be defensively, the latter, though classy in going forward lacks the skill to cover up at the back.

Marcelo has got both attributes. He can help out on the flanks and also cover up for his team when they face fierce attack which is why the Spanish boss is said to have added him to his list of targets.

The news of the Real Madrid defender’s potential switch to the Emirates is coming at a time when we have been made to believe that the acquisition of Kieran Tierney by the North London side is almost done. According to some reputable sources, the player has agreed personal terms with Arsenal but Celtic are still unsatisfied with the fee put forward by his suitors.

Marcelo has tabled a request to quit the Bernabeu so as to honour one of the offers coming in for him. His representatives are having talks with Florentino Perez, so says the Spanish outlet.

One of the factors that has influenced the 31-year-old's decision is the arrival of Mendy, which could limit his playing time.

Arsenal will face a tough competition since Paris Saint Germain, AC Milan and Juventus are also in the race.

The Brazilian's reign at Madrid has been a successful one. He has won several trophies which include 4 League and UCL titles. He would greatly improve the Arsenal team but I don't see that happening.
