Arsenal seriously explore signing Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira

Arsenal are seriously exploring the prospect of signing Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira.

Goal says Thomas Partey has long been on Arsenal 's radar but, with their transfer budget set to be limited this summer, they are reliant on Atletico Madrid softening their demands.

Porto midfielder Danilo recently launched a charm offensive towards the Gunners and manager Mikel Arteta.

And 'informal discussions' have taken place over the Portuguese player with Atletico resistant to proposals to include Matteo Guendouzi in a deal for Partey.

Pereira, meanwhile, recently praised Arteta's work at Arsenal and spoke of his Premier League dreams as he eyes a move to the Emirates.
