Despite fierce competition presently going on in the EPL, Arsenal are going quite well. Nevertheless considering many quality sides around them, it is definitely going to be difficult for the Gunners and many Gunners fans feel that more quality is needed in order for their club to challenge for the title.
Perhaps manager Arsene Wenger is in agreement too as A Bola reported that Arsenal are tracking Porto midfielder Danilo. Arsene Wenger is seemingly keen to improve his options in the middle of the park.
Danilo reportedly has a €40 million release clause in his contract, and considering that the midfielder has a contract lasting until 2020 then Arsenal will likely have to get near that number to get a deal complete.
Presently, the move for Danilo is in the early stages and there is no evidence yet that a move is imminent for the Gunners. However, Arsenal fans are impressed that manager Arsene Wenger is targeting him, making midfield reinforcement the top priority.
This season so far Danilo has made 15 league appearances for Porto and has become a vital figure in the team with two goals already. He is a defensive midfielder who is excellent at breaking up play and ensuring that his side doesn’t concede too.
