Spartak Moscow demand Arsenal striker in swap talks for Romulo

Spartak Moscow midfielder Romulo is back on the radar of Arsenal. The Mail on Sunday says manager Arsene Wenger considered a move for the 24-year-old Brazilian last January and the player's agents have made contact with Arsenal in the hope of pushing through a deal next month.

Romulo, who has been likened in style to Gilberto Silva, was in Brazil's 2012 Olympic squad and is a favourite of national coach Dunga.

Brazilian sides Flamengo and Internacional are keen to sign Romulo on loan but he wants a permanent move to Arsenal if terms can be thrashed out.

Spartak want £8m plus Yaya Sanogo on loan but the French striker is not keen on a move to Moscow.
