In the last year, many Brazilian young stars have been hitting the transfer news.
Many players have moved away from their native country to join the elite clubs in Europe. Oscar, Lucas Moura, Paulinho and Neymar have already joined top clubs, and now it’s time for Bernard to make his move.
Bernard has also reportedly wished to make his move to Europe, though all decisions lie in the negotiations between Atletico Mineiro and Arsenal.
Bernard put in some great displays for Brazil whenever he was called upon as a substitute by Scolari at the Confederations Cup. Since then, he has been on the wish-list of many elite clubs.
Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur were the clubs interested in him, but Arsenal looks like an an ideal destination for him.
The 20-year-old winger could provide a great weapon on the flanks for Arsenal. Bernard is known for his quick feet and possesses a great quality of a winger. It is reported that Arsenal have made a £21m bid for the Brazilian.
The Gunners are also determined to chase their £40m target Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
Manager Arsene Wenger has been quite busy this summer. Deals for Suarez and Bernard are looking quite realistic and if the transfer occurs, Wenger will have a great squad to compete for the Premier League and Champions League.
