Arsenal transfer target Bruno Guimaraes has spoken out for the first time on speculation linking him with a January move to the Premier League.

The Brazilian midfielder has emerged as a target for Arsenal, who are looking to bolster Mikel Arteta’s squad this month as he bids to challenge for a top-four spot.

Guimaraes, 22, has developed into a key player for Athletico Paranaense since joining the Brazilian club in 2018 and is valued at £21million.

Last week, it was reported that Arsenal’s technical director Edu was due to hold talks in London with representatives of Guimaraes, and now the Brazilian has responded to the transfer links.

He told SporTV: ‘What I asked my agents was that the transfer is good for me and for Athletico Paranaense.

‘I know that clubs are in talks… it’s difficult to choose. They are all great teams.’

As well as targeting Guimaraes, Arsenal have also been heavily linked with a January move for PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa.

Responding to Arsenal’s interest in Kurzawa, PSG sporting director Leonardo said: ‘For the moment we have not had any discussions with Arsenal.’

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, added: ‘I haven’t spoken with Layvin or anyone else about his departure this winter.

‘Layvin is number two behind [Juan] Bernat in the left-back position. ‘We need him and he has played well recently.’
