Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira has talked up a possible transfer to Arsenal by admitting that he is a big fan of Mikel Arteta's work at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have been tipped to make a move for the 28-year-old, who has impressed in the centre of Porto's midfield since 2015.
Amid rumours that Arsenal are prepared to trigger that release clause, the Portugal international revealed that he believes he would fit their system well under Arteta.
"I think [Arteta] is doing a really, really, good job there," he told Stats Perform News. "He is a really good coach who started as the second coach at [Manchester] City, so he has a little experience and Arsenal play very good football and I think he is doing very well there.
"He is a Spanish coach, he is a bit similar to Portuguese coaches, they also want to play with the ball and improve with the ball, so I think he is a good coach. The style I think I can fit there, the way he plays also thinking on the ball, the team always has to be together – I think it is a good way to play.
"Of course I like to be here in Porto, to be here in my country, but I want to be in a better league like the Premier League. I always dreamed about playing in that league.
"I played also in Serie A but I think the Premier League is a huge league and one day I want to play there, to improve to be a better player. I think it's the best league in the world."
Pereira, also previously linked with a switch to Manchester United, is under contract with Porto until 2022.
