Arsenal has started working on a Bernardo Silva transfer following Man City’s leave request.
Arsenal are looking to add a playmaker this summer, and Bernardo Silva is now on the market.
According to sources, Arsenal has started negotiations to buy Bernardo Silva. Following the £100 million acquisition of Jack Grealish, the Manchester City offensive midfielder is up for grabs this summer, and the player has told Pep Guardiola that he wants to go.
Bernardo joined Manchester City from Monaco in the summer of 2017 and has since won three Premier League titles, four League Cups, and one FA Cup.
The 26-year-old is now eager to take on a new challenge, with La Liga attracting a lot of interest from the Portuguese international.
City currently has a plethora of offensive options, so Bernardo’s playing time is likely to be limited next season if he stays.
Guardiola said yesterday that Bernardo is one of four players who have told him they want to leave City this summer in order for him to reclaim some money.
Leicester have ‘responded’ to Arsenal’s bid to swap James Maddison.
Guardiola remarked yesterday, “He’s our player.” “It’s not just Bernardo who wants to leave; there are two, three, or four other players who want to leave as well.
“However, they are our contracted players, and if they bring an offer and their representatives come here and want to go, we are open to discussing anything. But it is up to them.”
Arsenal have begun to look into the potential of acquiring Bernardo, according to The Mirror, as they continue their search for a new attacking midfielder.
Mikel Arteta is familiar with the player from his time at City, where he was Guardiola’s assistant before joining Arsenal.
DON’T MISS LEICESTER’S’response’ to Arsenal’s bid to exchange James Maddison. Pep Guardiola is considering a position change for Jack Grealish, who is currently serving in a rotational capacity at Manchester City. As ‘Inter eye two talents in a swap deal,’ Romelu Lukaku ‘agrees personal terms with Chelsea.’
Arsenal had James Maddison on their shortlist, but Leicester have shown no interest in selling him.
The Foxes have set a price of £60 million for their creative spark, but there is no certainty they will accept that number.
Arsenal reportedly offered a slew of players in a trade through intermediaries, but the offer was turned down.
If Real Madrid decides to trade Martin Odegaard, Arsenal will have another choice.
