The rumours surrounding Arsenal’s move for Luiz Gustavo are certainly growing.

On Friday Bayern Munich’s Brazilian midfielder told Bayerischer Rundfunk Radio: ”I believe that the English Premier League is of top quality and Arsenal definitely stand out … I love their style of play and I have been watching them for some time now … However like yourself I do not know what is happening on the other side at this moment.”

And on Saturday some pretty spurious sources including the Metro claimed Arsenal had sealed a 14 million pound deal for the 26-year-old.

On Sunday tomorrow’s edition of the Sun suggest Arsenal have bid 18 million pounds for Luiz Gustavo.
