Arsenal and Spurs reportedly interested in Wolfsburg midfielder

by Up Front

After failing to sign Brazilian midfielder Gustavo in the summer, Arsenal are reported to be back in the hunt for the 26-year-old this January.

It was said the player opted for a surprise switch to Wolfsburg in order to guarantee first team football in a crucial World Cup season, but may be open to a move once a club triggers his buy-out clause during the January transfer window. It is believed Barcelona are also interested in the player.

Gustavo told Globo Esporte:

“It’s always good to have your name linked to Barcelona.


“This is the third time there has been interest from them.


“I have a long contract which includes a buyout fee, and if anyone wants to pay that, they can sign me.

The Daily Express reports Tottenham may challenge their North London rivals to his signature.
