Arsenal are set to sign Colombian attacking midfielder Juan Quintero for £15million from FC Porto.
Reliable Colombian journalist David Rueda has reported that Quintero will arrive at Arsenal on Monday and it means that the Gunners will have bought another attacking midfielder, despite deciding not to sign Cesc Fabregas. Quintero though will add more flair and pace to the Gunners’ attack and can play comfortably on either wing.
Es real la posibilidad de que Juan Fernando Quintero juegue con el Arsenal. Estaría llegando el lunes a Londres. Ojalá se concrete.

Quintero, 21, joined Porto for just £8million last season. The move has come out of nowhere, but it seems to be a reliable report with The Times now backing up the claims from Colombia.
The versatile midfielder is just 5ft 6′ and due to his frame and style of play, has been likened to Lionel Messi.
More to come..
