Alexandre Pato (Corinthians (on loan at Sao Paulo)) – Click right for more Arsenal transfer news… – Arsene Wenger is clearly keen on adding another striker to his ranks, despite the form of Theo Walcott. One man being touted with a possibly move to the Emirates is ex-AC Milan Pato, who is in good for over in Brazil with Sao Paulo. The loan star has been in inspired form, scoring goals aplenty but sees his time there come to an end in December and agent Kia Joorabchian (more on him later) could move him to the Premier League 5 1. William Carvalho (Sporting Lisbon) – Read all about the latest gossip, below, then find out who else could be on their way to Arsenal by clicking the arrow above – The 23-year-old has been coveted by several top clubs in recent seasons but freely admits Arsenal are a club he’s incredibly fond of. Thierry Henry’s time in north London brought them to his attention and, as a defensive midfield, Carvalho is a player who could interest Arsene Wenger too. He’s in no hurry to leave Portugal but a move could materialise with the player rated at around £25m. 5 5. Luis Henrique (Botafogo) – He might be only 17 but plenty of European giants, including the Gunners are interested in pinching the forward from Brazil, according to reports. His release clause is £10.5million and it’s being reported agent Kia Joorabchian may try and help his star get the move. Arsenal may want to move quickly as he’s been selected for Brazil’s Under-17 World Cup squad and could grab the attention of more suitors. 5 4. Nir Bitton (Celtic) – Click right for more Arsenal transfer news… – Francis Coquelin’s emergence at Arsenal, rather strangely, may have put a spanner in the works for Arsene Wenger. While William Carvalho is being linked with a move to the Emirates, it may be more suitable to find an understudy for Coqueling rather than a big-money signing to usurp him and rock the boat. This is where Bitton could come in, with Gunners scouts reportedly watching him. He’d certainly be a cheaper alternative to Carvalho. 5 3. Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain) – Click right for more Arsenal transfer news… – The Uruguayan didn’t leave the Ligue 1 side in January, despite interest from the Gunners and Manchester United. Arsenal, though, are still keeping tabs on the striker as they contemplate reviving their interest next summer. Arsene Wenger appears extremely keen on landing the lank-haired star and will not be desisted. last_img
