Arsenal Nearing ‘Great’ 23-Year-Old Signing as Edu Takes Charge of Negotiations.
In what could be a significant addition to Arsenal’s squad, the Gunners are reportedly on the brink of securing the services of talented Brazilian midfielder, Bitello.
The North London club’s Sporting Director, Edu Gaspar, has taken the reins in direct communication with Gremio, paving the way for a potential deal.
According to reliable reports from Brazilian outlet UOL, Arsenal’s interest in Bitello has been steadily intensifying.
The Gunners have already made some impressive moves during the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and Declan Rice, underlining their ambition to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, is eager to bolster his team following their quest for the Premier League title, which was hampered by a lack of depth in the previous campaign.
The departure of Granit Xhaka to Germany earlier this month further emphasized the need for reinforcements in the midfield, and Bitello has emerged as a prime target for the Gunners.
Notably, journalist Paul Brown has asserted that Edu is well-acquainted with the 23-year-old Brazilian, and he is deemed the ‘favourite’ midfield prospect for Arsenal.
Latest updates from Brazil suggest that Edu has already initiated talks with Gremio, pushing to strike a deal for the promising midfielder.
Described as a ‘great player’ with exceptional technical abilities, Bitello’s versatility makes him an attractive prospect for any European club. While he is yet to earn a cap for Brazil, he has showcased his talents brilliantly for Gremio over the past couple of seasons.
Impressive performances, including seven goals and three assists in Brazil’s second tier last season, were instrumental in Gremio’s promotion to Serie A.
Edu’s shrewd eye for identifying lesser-known talents is well-documented, and Bitello’s potential signing could prove to be another testament to his adeptness in scouting young talents.
Amidst the ongoing speculations linking Arsenal to other midfielders like Romeo Lavia and the uncertainty surrounding Thomas Partey’s future, Bitello emerges as an attractive and more affordable option for the Gunners.
As negotiations progress, Arsenal fans are undoubtedly eager to witness the conclusion of this potential deal, hoping that Bitello’s arrival will bolster their midfield ranks and aid their quest for silverware in the upcoming season.
