Arsenal chasing Brazilian midfielder

The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to strengthen his midfield and sees the 25-year-old as a good signing.

Arsenal have struggled following the departure of Gilberto Silva, Mathieu Flamini and Lassana Diarra.

Chelsea and Aston Villa are also interested in the Fiorentina star, who has a buy-out clause of over £17million.
