The news of Mohamed Elneny’s signficant injury coupled with the fact Arsenal are to be without Thomas Partey for at least two weeks has ramped things up a bit.

It’s believed the Gunners are ready to make a signing but whether that comes in a central midfield or right wing position remains to be seen.

However, in the midst of all the rumours has come a strong indication from South American and MLS commentator/journalist, Callum Williams on Arsenal’s movements.

Williams tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that Arsenal have enquired about Palmeiras midfielder, Danilo, thus reigniting their interest in the 21-year-old.

A Brazilian box-to-box midfielder and young in age, Danilo fits the bill for everything Edu and Arteta are looking for and could be available at a cut-price deal.

The midfielder has a contract that runs until 2026 but it’s believed the club wouldn’t stand in his way if a big bid was to arrive to support his absence.
