Arsenal might have entered the chase for Bruno Guimaraes and could battle Manchester United and other clubs for the Newcastle United mainstay.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are one of the clubs keeping close tabs on the situation of Bruno Guimaraes ahead of the summer. Mikel Arteta wants a new holding midfielder in the summer window and could enquire about the Newcastle United mainstay, with Manchester United also keen on the midfielder who will cost £100 million.

Arsenal in Bruno Guimaraes hunt?

It is no surprise to see Arsenal’s name pop up in the conversation about Bruno Guimaraes, given Mikel Arteta wants a new holding midfielder in his ranks next summer. The Gunners are linked with several targets ahead of the next window, with Martin Zubimendi, Amadou Onana and Douglas Luiz just a few of those.

Each of those players carries a sizeable prize tag. But Guimaraes, the Newcastle United mainstay, has a fixed £100 million price on his head. The Tyneside club have reportedly thought about selling the Brazilian among a host of other players, and should they do that, especially to a Premier League rival, then the price may not be negotiated.

In any case, Arsenal will keep alert to his situation as Guimaraes is a player whom Arteta tracked before he made the switch to Newcastle from Lyon. Meanwhile, the Gunners are not alone in the chase for the Brazilian as Manchester United are also looking to bring a statement midfield signing in the summer.

Guimaraes is on their list, and they may have the capacity to pay the £100 million required to sign the Brazilian international. They are also keen on Joao Neves, having scouted him again recently in Portugal. Overall, INEOS are in the market for some marquee signings and may see the £100 million-rated Newcastle United mainstay as a viable option for their plans.

Will Newcastle United sell Guimaraes?

Newcastle United have lofty ambitions and consider Guimaraes as someone they are unwilling to sell. However, with FFP and PSR problems looming large over their heads, the club might have to sell to balance their books and sign new players.

Hence, there is a chance for Bruno Guimaraes to leave, although should any suitor trigger his £100 million release clause, then things may not be in Newcastle United’s hands.
