Arsenal have sent out their scouts to look at Star boy

Arsenal have reportedly sent representatives to Brazil in an attempt to sign Gremio player Bitello.

That’s according to Brazilian outlet Correio do Povo. It claims that Arsenal are about to bid for the 23-year-old.

The Gunners have enjoyed an encouraging start to the summer window. This is they’ve already moved to bring in Kai Havertz from Chelsea.

Moves for Ajax defender Jurrien Timber and West Ham skipper Declan Rice are expected to be completed this week. With Mikel Arteta keen to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.

BITELLO COULD BE NEXT ON THE LIST FOR ARSENAL

Correio do Povo reports that Arsenal have flown out representatives to Brazil. This is to present an offer to Gremio for Bitello.

They are expected to launch an official bid in the coming days. If Arsenal match Gremio’s demands, he will be allowed to move. Bitello is a bit of an unknown talent and is yet to be capped for Brazil.

The midfielder helped Gremio earn promotion to the Brazilian Serie A last season. This is by scoring seven times and registering three assists in Serie B.

He’s proven to be a versatile option for Gremio though. This is by having played in multiple roles in midfield as well as off the right-hand side.

It certainly would be a surprise to see Arsenal move for Bitello. When you consider the names they have been linked with this summer.

The Gunners seem to be going for established talents. Moreover, this is with the likes of Havertz, Rice and Timber expected to come in and challenge for places in Arteta’s side.

Nevertheless, if Arsenal’s interest in Bitello is genuine. They may believe they have unearthed a gem and in comparison to the likes of Lavia. However, he could be available at a reasonable price.
