Wenger considering buying Galatasaray winger Bruma: Reports
London Sep 21 (IANS) English football club Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is mulling a move for Galatasaray’s winger Bruma, having sent scouts to watch his last outing for the Turkish side, according to media reports.
The 21-year-old, who was reportedly a target for Manchester United, was also watched by scouts from London rivals Chelsea, Tottenham and West Ham United.
The Portuguese, who has represented his nation at every level up to the U-21 stage, has bagged five goals and 15 goal assists in 50 appearances since joining the Turkish outfit from Sporting Lisbon in 2013.
He was rated at around 25 million dollars when he was linked to United in August, but with a whole host of English Premier League clubs working to strike a deal, that fee could well rise.
Arsenal spent heavily in the transfer window before the beginning of the current season, with late deals for defender Skhodran Mustafi and striker Lucas Perez being the highlights.
But they can surprise everyone by splashing the cash yet again to land Bruma in the January transfer window.
