Arsenal looking to seal Pereira deal.

Arsenal are considering making a move for FC Porto’s Danilo Pereira this summer. The 28-year old has a release clause of €60 million but Porto are willing to accept as low as just a third of that price.

The Gunners are eager to bolster their midfield options. Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey remains on their wishlist but the recent financial crisis is preventing them to match his €50m buy-out clause. [ESPN]
