Arsenal looking to sign Brazilian brute

Arsenal may look to Chelsea centre-back AlexReports are suggesting that Arsenal are ready to add some tenacity to their defence and make a bid for Chelsea defender, Alex.

Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger, has failed to make any major signings this summer, and none with Premier League experience but it seems the 8-2 drubbing he suffered against Manchester United on Sunday has shocked him into action.

The North London club have been associated with Christopher Samba, Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill all summer, but speculation is as far as any of those moves have gotten.

Chelsea are thought to want around £10m for the Brazilian, but Arsenal value the centre-back somewhere closer to £7m.

The 29 year-old has featured prominently in a Chelsea Defence for the past two seasons, but is likely to see less game time with David Luiz ready to return from injury.
