Atletico Paranaense president Mario Celso Petraglia has revealed that Premier League giants Arsenal are interested in highly rated defensive midfielder Bruno Guimares.

The club president also disclosed when Arsenal will lodge their bid for the player in an interview with Portuguese newspaper O Jogo.

According to him, Arsenal will bid for Atletico Paranense midfielder Bruno Guimares towards the end of the season.

He also confirmed that they have received an offer from Portuguese champions Benfica.

Earlier, it was reported that Benfica have made a £17m bid for the player as well as a certain percentage of the next sale.

Benfica have added 10% of the next sale to their offer but it is expected to be rejected by the Brazilian Serie A club who knows that the likes of Arsenal can pay more money for the player who has been watched on several occasions by the club’s representatives.

Bruno Guimares was in superb form for his club which finished in the top five after the last game was played in this season’s Brazilian Serie A.

Apart from Benfica and Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea are also clubs with interest in the young Brazilian midfielder.

For now, Benfica are favorites to sign him.
