Arsenal are reportedly close to striking a deal to land Bayern Munich's Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo for £14m.

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on Bayern Munich's Luiz Gustavo.

The defensive midfielder is attracting the interest of Chelsea and Wolfsburg, but it is the Gunners who have emerged as favourites to land the Brazilian, according to The Mirror.

Gustavo could be available for around £14m and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is keen to boost his midfield options ahead of the new Premier League season next week.

Gustavo, who was part of the Brazil squad that won the Confederations Cup back in June, could sign before Arsenal entertain Aston Villa on the opening day of the campaign.

Wenger recently admitted that his squad was short of numbers.
