EPL: Arsenal told its £27m or not for Porto Midfielder


FC Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira is a major target for Arsenal this summer transfer window but he will not be available for any cheap price.

The Gunners have been told that they will have to pay about £27 million if they must capture the FC Porto midfielder as Portuguese news outlet O Jogo claims Danilo Pereira is free and available to the club this summer transfer window.

Arsenal have valued Danilo Pereira for £18 million and will be set for the negotiation table to be able to convince FC Porto but that could be pretty difficult, a task to carry out.

However, a fee of £27 million was rejected for Danilo Pereira last season by FC Porto but with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the club, he will be used to source some funds.

With Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi set to leave the club this summer window, the coming of Danilo Pereira will make the team better with more depth.

The North London club is already in talks with Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid for the signature of Ghanian international midfielder, Thomas Partey but will consider Danilo Pereira as an option if they fail to convince the La Liga outfit.
