With Jamie Vardy not happening, and Mkhitaryan looking like he will remain at Dortmund or go to Manchester United, Arsenal have started making other plans.
Brazilian media reports suggest that Arsenal have made contact with Atletico Mineiro regarding the transfer of Douglas Santos.
The 22-year-old left-back has pulled in a lot of interest around Europe, with Barcelona also in the race. The Catalan giants view him as a perfect alternative to Jordi Alba who can give some genuine rivalry to him.
Be that as it may, while Barcelona is yet to reach the Brazilian agents, Arsenal have reached Atletico Mineiro in respect of the players’ possible move to the North London outfit. Douglas would cost about £7.7million and Atletico are propped to lose him this summer, as indicated by Brazilian outlet Hoje Em Dia.
Douglas permanently signed a 4-year contract with Atletico Mineiro on 20th July 2015 having joined the club on 12th August, 2014 on a season long-loan. He was signed for €3 Million from Udinese
Douglas who will fit in very well at left back in the Gunners set up is probably for me the right man for the Job to stabilize the inconsistencies in the backline of the Arsenal team.
