Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Real Madrid are on the verge of completing a massive deal to land Arsenal target Andre Silva to Santiago Bernebeu this January.
Spanish outlet AS have reported that the reigning European champions are ready to fork out a mouth-watering £50m for the 21-year-old Porto striker.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Arsenal were prepared to table a £25m offer to snap up the highly-rated forward, but Madrid’s latest bid will surely end anyone else’s chances.
Juventus were also interested in signing Silva, but they too are unable to match Real Madrid’s lucrative proposal.
The Portugal international has been in red-hot form so far this season, netting 18 goals in 26 appearances for club and country.
A move to the Spanish capital now looks on the cards unless Arsenal or other top European clubs can match Real’s substantial offer.
