He’s been heavily linked with a Premier League switch this week and Arsenal will be deploying scouts at this weekend’s Istanbul Derby to run the rule over Galatasaray star Bruma, report Turkish-football.com.
Interesting not only the Gunners but also Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham too, the 21-year-old winger has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season and Arsenal are now keen on watching how he performs in a higher level fixture.
Tomorrow’s Besiktas versus Galatasaray fixture is arguably the biggest game in Turkish football and Bruma will be heading into the fixture full of confidence having bagged a goal and two assists so far this season.
Also achieving two Man of the Match performances so far in the Super Lig, Galatasaray are trying to quash rumours over his long-term future by tying him down to a contract until 2020.
Keen on installing a 40 million euro release clause into this deal as well, it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will formalise a bid in January.
As expected, the competition for Bruma’s signature is fierce however with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reported to have sent scouts to watch the Portuguese star ever since facing Galatasaray as part of the Red Devils’ pre-season programme.
