Arsenal are set to submit a second offer to sign Palmeiras midfielder Danilo.
Fabrizio Romano recently confirmed to CaughtOffside via his Substack column that Arsenal were still interested in signing Danilo. The 21-year-old is a highly-rated midfielder in Brazil having already become a regular for Palmeiras despite his age.
With Thomas Partey’s regular injuries becoming a bit of an issue for Arsenal, bringing in a midfielder to provide increased competition could be a priority for Mikel Arteta.
