Arsenal striker target Vagner Love will be allowed to leave CSKA Moscow this summer, the club have confirmed.

The Brazilian international striker confirmed last week that the Russian side had rejected an offer from Porto for his services, but that he'd still be keen to move to a club who held ambitions to win the Champions League if the opportunity arose.

And after seven years at the Luzhniki Stadium, club president Evgeny Giner has revealed CSKA will grant the player his wish if a reasonable offer is received.

"If Vagner gets an offer, we’ll be sure to let him go", Giner told

"He has of course been with us for a long time. But we will sit down with him and decide."

The 27-year-old has spent two of those seven years on loan in his homeland, with Palmeiras in 2009 and Flamengo in 2010, but interest from Europe remains strong in the player.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was first linked with the player in the summer of 2008, and again the following two seasons in the transfer window.


The Gunners looked to strengthen their attacking line this summer with the addition of South Korean captain Park Chu-Young, but the loan exit of Nicklas Bendtner means Arsenal still lack depth in the striking position.

Vagner Love is once again appearing on the Emirates radar, and insidefutbol is claiming the Frenchman is currently considering a January bid to bring the player to Arsenal.
