Arsenal will have to pay €20m if they want to prise Bruno Peres away from Torino.
After having sent scouts to watch the player in Lisbon, Arsenal are now said to be ready to launch a move for the player according to a report in Tuttosport.
They claim that the Italians will not entertain any offer under €20m for the 26-year-old, who is also said to be a target for Manchester City who apparently had a £37.5m bid turned down for Kostas Manolas, another reported Arsenal targeted. Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.
So what’s going on?
I find, with reports which claim clubs are preparing bids aren’t the best ones to believe.
That doesn’t stop them spreading like wildfire across the internet, but I would advise caution.
Most transfers happen in a similar way. When things are reported out of order, or in advance of actually happening, alarm bells be heeded to.
