Arsenal, AC Milan keeping tabs on Internacional defender Bruno Fuchs

Arsenal are keeping tabs on singing Internacional defender Bruno Fuchs, according to reports.

Mikel Arteta wants to bolster his centre-backs this summer, despite having seven already on the books.

And according to Brazilian journalist Gustavo Fogaca, the Gunners have been joined by Porto and AC Milan in scouting the 21-year-old prospect.

"Yes, in addition to AC Milan, Arsenal and Porto also sent their scouts to Porto Alegre to analyse the player," Fogaca told FCInterNews.

"But for the moment, nobody has made a written proposal. However, the president of Internacional, Marcelo Medeiros, said he was willing to sell the young defender."

Asked how much Fuchs could fetch in the transfer window, Fogaca responded: "It is very difficult to make an exact estimate, especially now in times of a pandemic.

"Maybe, between 2-5 million euros (£1.7m-£4.5million), but it is difficult to be precise."
