Arsenal linked with Real Madrid starlet

Gunner boss Arsene Wenger wants Real Madrid youngster, Lucas Silva, to bolster his midfield.

The 22-year-old Brazilian midfielder has been under Arsene Wenger’s radar for quite some time and initial reports claim that Arsenal are tabling up a transfer deal to entice Silva to Emirates Stadium.

Manchester United and Chelsea are also keen to embellish their squad with the Brazilian young talent; however, reports claim that Emirates Stadium will be the most probable destination for Lucas Silva.

Meanwhile, while these clubs seem to seek a permanent transfer, Real Madrid’s newly-appointed coach Rafa Benitez is only considering a loan move for now.

Silva stepped into the football world with Cruzeiro in 2007 and, after a stunning 2013-14 season with the Brazilian club, joined Los Blancos on 22 January 2015 for a transfer fee recorded to be somewhere around £9.7 million. However, the Brazilian midfielder spent most of the time warming up the bench at Santiago Bernabeu with only 8 appearances last term.
