‘Edu better prepare a masterclass!’ – Arsenal fans fume amid Bruno Guimaraes transfer update


Arsenal look set to miss out on long-term transfer target Bruno Guimarães.

The 24-year-old is said to be close to joining Newcastle United, with a £30million fee reportedly agreed between both clubs to seal a deal in the January window.

The Brazilian is set to undergo a medical in Ecuador later today, with the Magpies in pole position to land his signature as their transfer rebuild under Eddie Howe continues at pace.

Having long been rumoured with a move to north London, the Gunners are yet to launch a formal bid, with Italian side Juventus also hinted as another possible destination for the midfielder.
