Gremio forward Luan is a target for Arsenal and Liverpool, according to reports.

The 24-year-old Brazilian is impressing teams from Europe and could soon leave his current club, Gremio.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal and Liverpool are “ready to fight each other” for his signature.

They report that he could cost £30m after Russian side, Spartak Moscow, failed with a £17m bid in the summer.

Luan has made 17 appearances for Gremio in Brazil’s Serie A this season, scoring six and and assisting five.

It’s in the Copa Libertadores where he’s really impressed, with seven goals in nine appearances. He’s the second highest scorer in the competition.

Luan has just two caps for Brazil, and as such may struggle to obtain a work permit to play in England despite also being a member of Brazil’s gold-winning Olympic team in 2016.

Arsenal rarely sign players straight from Brazil, perhaps due to how hard it is to get work permit for young talents.

The last young player Arsenal signed from the country was young forward, Wellington Silva, who spent his entire time as an Arsenal player on loan before he was released.

Luan may be impressing scouts, but Arsenal are more likely to look within Europe to strengthen their attack.
