Arsenal target Robert Firmino is good enough to play for any team in the world according to Brazil boss Dunga.

The Hoffenheim ace is being linked with a move to north London, and scored his side’s only goal in a 1-0 over Chile at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Fresh blood

The 23-year-old is one of a host of new faces in the Brazil squad as they look to rebuild after the World Cup, and has impressed with his club side who currently sit in 7th place in the Bundesliga. A fee in the region of £22 million has been suggested.

Bayern Munich are also believed to be interested and Dunga believes a step up to one of Europe's biggest clubs wouldn't phase him. 

"He can play for any club and being on the Brazilian national team that comes a lot easier," he said.

Aranguiz dreaming of Arsenal switch

Chile international Charles Aranguiz says it would be a dream to follow Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal in the summer.

The midfielder is being linked with a £4.5 million move to the Gunners at the end of the current campaign. Sanchez’s international teammate spoke after the friendly he played for Chile against Brazil at the Emirates Stadium and insisted that it would be a dream come true to make the switch to north London.

They're a great team, and it would be a dream but for now that's all it is, a dream," Aranguiz said.

Arsenal ready to make move for Sterling

Arsenal are plotting to make a shock summer move for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling should the Reds be unable to tie him down to a new contract before the summer.

Negotiations over the England international’s future at Anfield have been very much a stop-start affair since the turn of the year, prompting talk that Liverpool could yet lose a fan favourite for the second season running.

Sterling’s impact on Brendan Rodgers’ first-team has been huge and according to the Daily Mirror the Northern Irish manager isn’t the only coach to have been significantly impressed with his development.

Arsene Wenger is believed to be a keen admirer of the diminutive forward and wants to take advantage of the contract standoff currently instigated by the man himself, who has put plans to sign a new deal to one side whilst he concentrates of finishing the season strongly.
