So far in this summers transfer window Arsenal fans have voiced their frustrations at yet another season in which they believe their club have failed to strengthen. However, a rumoured £70 million war chest has so far not been used by the manager. A £17.2 million opening bid for the Brazilian may signal an end to that.
Gustavo had been a regular in the Bayern side that lost to Chelsea in the 2011/2012 seasons Champions League final. However, with the addition of Spaniard Javi Martinez last term he has found it difficult to hold down a regular starting slot. Further additions of Thiago and Mario Gotze this summer look to have signalled the end to his future at the club and Arsenal could potentially be a good fit for the player.
