Arsenal seem to be very interested in signing Torino’s full back Bruno Peres, according to reports.
The Gunners have been keeping tabs on the defender for some time and it appears Wenger has now made his interest concrete.
The defender is a versatile player as he can also feature on the right wing and it is believed that Wenger has been impressed by his quality.
According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have seen an opening bid of £13.5m bid for the Brazilian rejected by Torino
The report claims the Italian side are holding out for a fee of £17m.
Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Paris Saint Germain have all been linked with the defender but it appears Arsenal are the only club to have made its interest concrete.
Arsenal currently have Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers and Carl Jekinson as its right back options and we don’t really see the need for the club to sign another one.
Taking nothing away from Peres, he is a quality player which was obvious in his performances last season as he made 31 appearances for Torino, scoring three goals and assisting seven but there are other areas in the squad that Wenger needs to strengthen before the start of the season.
