Arsenal haggling over Gustavo price with Bayern Munich
Arsenal are competing with Napoli for Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo. The London Evening Standard says Bayern Munich are demanding around £17million for the 26-year-old and are relaxed about his possible destination with a variety of clubs from across Europe having registered an interest.
The fee is not viewed as prohibitive - although Arsenal are believed to value him at closer to £14m - and Bayern are allowing clubs to negotiate with the Brazilian's representatives over personal terms as he looks to improve on his £60,000-a-week wage.
