Arsenal want to sign Yuri Alberto

Arsenal want to sign Yuri Alberto, 20 years old Brazilian forward.

According to Goal Brazil, Arsenal and Shakhtar Donetsk are interested in signing Internacional forward Yuri Alberto in one of the next two transfer windows.

The Gunners desperately need a forward. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not scored a goal in the league since October, while Alexandre Lacazette has found the net only once in the Premier League all season, which was also almost two months ago.

Arsenal fans want Mikel Arteta and Edu to enter the market in January to sign a number nine who will solve their problems in front of goal. The likes of Dusan Vlahovic, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alexander Isak have been linked.

But if the report is to be believed, the Gunners are looking for someone who has yet to play at the top tier.

Yuri Alberto, still in his 20s, is the man who supposedly caught Edu’s attention before the January transfer window.

Arsenal want to sign Yuri Alberto

The report claims that Arteta’s Arsenal reached out to Andre Cury, Yuri Alberto’s agent, to discuss what it would take to sign him.

The 20-year-old, who made his senior debut at Neymar’s former club Santos in 2017, failed to make it there. After just 16 appearances, he joined Internacional, where he has made a name for himself as one of the most talented young forwards in the country, especially this season.

Alberto has scored 19 goals and provided four assists so far this season. He still has more than three and a half years left on his contract, but the report states that Internacional will consider selling if Arsenal or any other interested club submits an offer in the region of £ 12.7 million.
