Arsenal keeping tabs on Bruno Guimaraes at Copa America 2024

Arsenal are reportedly watching Bruno Guimaraes star for Brazil at the Copa America, as his price tag might still be a problem for the Gunners. 

According to Fichajes, Arsenal are keen to watch Bruno Guimaraes as part of their scouting mission at the Copa America. The Newcastle United midfielder has been a target for the Gunners, who are about to keep tabs on several other names at the tournament held in the USA.

Arsenal to watch Bruno Guimaraes?

Arsenal are still in the market for a new holding midfielder and have Bruno Guimaraes as one of their preferred targets ahead of the summer. A while back, rumours of an imminent move due to Newcastle United’s PSR problems emerged in the media, but the midfielder has since gone on to join the Brazilian national team for the Copa America showdown. 

Newcastle United are unlikely to sell Guimaraes as part of their expected sales before June 30, and now, should any club want him, they will have to shell out considerably. In fact, the Magpies are not keen on a sale, but they will be left helpless should any interested side trigger his release clause, believed to be in the region of £100 million. Liverpool are also keen, but like the others, they too are unlikelty to pay what’s needed. 

The Reds are not a team that will pay that much for the Brazilian, despite needing a top-notch mifielder. Guimaraes has been a consistent performer since he arrived at the club two and a half years ago, and Arsenal really considers him an important target. The Gunners are likely to pass up the chance to sign him if his price tag does not reduce as the summer window progresses, something Newcastle United are unlikely to be bothered with. 

Either way, the Gunners are still tracking the midfielder and are about to watch him closely at the Copa America held in the USA. They are in the States to keep a watch on several other stars at the tournament, but Guimaraes will be one they will definitely take intricate details about. 

Gunners watching more Copa America stars

Beyond a new midfielder, the Gunners are also in the market for a new striker, as they plan on watching more stars at the Copa America. Arsenal are also watching Mexican star Santiago Gimenez, while Lautaro Martinez is also thought to be on their radar at the tournament. 

They are also watching Rodrygo Goes as part of their scouting mission in the USA. The winger is unlikely to leave Real Madrid, but the Gunners will be alert to any opportunity arising for the winger this summer.
