Arsenal plans to pursue a transfer for Danilo Pereira this summer.

Mikel Arteta is keen to add a stronger physical presence to his midfield but has to work with a limited budget due to the financial impact of COVID-19 and the prospect of a fourth season without Champions League football.

Danilo has a release clause of €60 million, but Porto are willing to sell him for around a third of that price.

Danilo earns approximately £48,000-a-week and therefore his wages would not prove prohibitive, while his likely transfer fee represents a much cheaper alternative to Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey.
