Arsenal to open talks with Dani Alves’ agent

Arsenal are set to hold talks with the agent of Barcelona right-back Dani Alves, who looks set to leave the Camp Nou when his contract expires this summer.

This is according to Spanish newspaper Sport - and brought to our attention by the Metro - who understand that the Gunners have a meeting planned with Dinorah Santana next week.

Santana told reporters earlier this week that neither he nor his client have received contract from Barcelona regarding a contract offer - and so they expect to begin the hunt for a new club shortly.

Interest in Alves high

Manchester United are reportedly keen to sign the Brazil international, who has won a host of major honours since joining Barcelona in 2008, as are the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool.

But Arsenal could put themselves into pole position to sign the 31-year-old after organising a meeting with Alves’ influential agent.

Alves wants future resolved quickly

The player is believed to be keen to resolve his future as quickly as possible, meaning Arsenal could sign the South American on a pre-contract agreement next week.

Alves would then link up with the Gunners after his contract expires at Barcelona.

Should Arsenal finalise a deal to sign Alves, question marks would be left over the future of Mathieu Debuchy, who has endured an injury-hit debut campaign since joining the Gunners from Newcastle United last summer.

Arsenal fans: would you rather have Alves or Debuchy at right-back? Have your say in the comments below.
