Arsenal target reveals Premier League offer

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal transfer target Bernard has confirmed he has three offers for a transfer this summer - including one from the Premier League.

According to talkSPORT, the 20-year-old revealed after the Copa Libertadores final that he has three offers from teams in Europe.

The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal, and the Gunners reportedly had scouts in attendance at the second leg of the final.

After the match - a game Atletico Mineiro won on penalties - Bernard told Sportv: "I've said a thousand times that I want to stay, but this does not depend on me.

"I will continue to work until the board decides in favour of my transfer. There are offers from England, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto."

The midfielder playmaker was reportedly the subject of a £21m bid by Arsenal, with the youngster set to undergo a medical on Friday.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has since dismissed the speculation, but it seems Bernard is a target for at least one Premier League club.

Other English teams linked with the 20-year-old include Liverpool and Tottenham, while Benfica have also been credited with an interest.

He impressed watching scouts on Wednesday night, as Atletico Mineiro overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit before winning on penalties against Paraguayan side Olimpia.
