Meet Brazilian Defensive Midfielder Arsenal Are Set To Sign On Monday
Arsene Wenger may have claimed that he won't be signing anyone in January unless he has to, but reports from Brazil suggest that a defensive midfielder could be on his way as soon as Monday.
Spartak Moscow's Brazilian international Romulo was rumoured to be returning to Brazil on loan, with Flamengo and Internacional allegedly interested in the 24-year old, only for Arsenal to hijack the talks with a permanent deal.
If this sounds like welcome news, Arsenal fans should remember that some things never change. Romulo's time in Russia has been beset by injuries and he's only played 22 games for his club in the last two years.
When he does get himself onto the pitch, this is what he's capable of.
