Transfer News: Porto midfielder wants Arsenal move
Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira has talked up a potential move to Arsenal by conceding that he is a huge fan of Mikel Arteta’s work at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have been tipped to make a move for the 28-year-old, who has intrigued as a central midfielder for Porto since 2015.
Danilo Pereira, accepted to be accessible for £54m, is supposed to be viewed as a better choice than Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka in holding midfield.
In the midst of rumors that Arsenal are set to trigger that release clause, the 28-year-old uncovered that he accepts he would fit their system well under Mikel Arteta.
I think Mikel Arteta is doing a ridiculously, great job there, he told Stats Perform News.
He is a great coach who began as the second coaching at Manchester City, so he has a little encounter and Arsenal play generally excellent football and I think he is doing very well there.
He is a Spanish coach, he is somewhat like Portuguese managers, they also need to play with the ball and improve with the ball, so I think he is a decent coach.
The style I want to fit there, the manner in which he plays also thinking ready, the team consistently must be together, I think it is a decent method to play.
Obviously I like to be here in Porto, to be here in my country, however I need to be in a better league like the Premier League. I generally imagined about playing in that league.
I played also in Serie A but I think the Premier League is a big league and one day I need to play there, to improve to be a better player.
Danilo Pereira, also recently connected with a move to Manchester United, is under contract with Porto until 2022.
