Arsenal have joined the host of English club in the race for Manchester United midfielder Pereira as the January Window opens. The Brazilian international who impressed while on loan at Valencia, was recalled this season, but have fallen down the pecking order since his meteoric rise back in August.

The unhappy player according to UOL will be making a crucial career decision within the coming days, with a perceived exit from the Old Trafford anticipated.

The promising Brazilian footballer sure is expected to have enough game time at the Emirates in the event that he decides to switch allegiance.

While Unai Emery’s side have a strong core in central midfield with Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira, they could do with more depth in that area as Aaron Ramsey’s future is in doubt and Mohamed Elneny doesn’t look a reliable option as a backup.

UOL speculates that Arsenal, West Ham and Everton have all tabled for offers for Brazilian footballer, but it remains to be seen if he’ll accept one of them or fight for his place at Manchester Club considering the managerial shift from Jose Mourinho to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
