Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are keen on signing Arthur Cabral, but they are facing competition from city rivals Tottenham Hotspur among other sides, according to an exclusive report from TEAMtalk.
The media outlet are reporting that Mikel Arteta’s side are scouting the 23-year-old Brazilian forward.
Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Southampton, Brighton and Hove Albion and West Ham United are among the teams who have watched the attacker in action in recent weeks.
The same report has claimed that the Whites wanted to sign him in the summer transfer market.
The West Yorkshire outfit were informed at the time that the ace was unlikely to be granted a work permit as Arthur was playing in the Swiss top flight.
The 23-year-old has netted as many as 20 goals already this campaign. Cabral has hit 11 goals and grabbed two assists in nine Super League matches.
The forward scored eight goals and picked up four assists in six Europa Conference League qualifiers and one goal in two ECL games.
The South American is a very talented striker and he is only 23. Therefore, he can only grow and develop as a centre-forward in the coming years.
