Arsenal linked Palmeiras midfielder Danilo

Brazilian publication R7 report that Arsenal are interested in a January move for Palmeiras midfielder Danilo. The 20-year-old has already made 83 appearances for the Brasileirão side, scoring five goals in his time for the Verdão.

The R7 news outlet report that the Gunners have made a €25 million for the youngster with a view to signing him in January.

Despite their interest, R7 suggest that Palmeiras are keen to keep hold of Danilo until the summer at the very least. They also suggest that it would take a request from the player to initiate a January switch.

Danilo made the switch to Palmeiras in 2020 to join their youth setup but quickly rose through the ranks to become a mainstay of the senior team
