Arsenal transfer target Danilo has alerted the club by declaring he is “ready” to move to the Premier League. The Gunners were interested in signing the Brazilian in the summer and could rekindle interest in him in the January transfer window.
Mikel Arteta is in the market for a central midfielder. Danilo is a defensive-minded player and would provide support and competition to Thomas Partey.
Palmeiras was unwilling to let the player leave in the summer, as he was in the middle of the Brazilian domestic season. Danilo played a key role in the rest of the campaign as Palmeiras went without a Serie A winner.
There is now a sense that a deal might be more viable after the season’s conclusion earlier this month. And Danilo has made it clear that he is open to a transfer.
