Gunners join race for £15m-rated Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes


Unai Emery reportedly wants to bring the 22-year-old Club Brugge ace to the Emirates as competition for Aubameyang and Lacazette

Arsenal are plotting a £15million move to sign in-demand Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes.

Gunners boss Unai Emery has been tracking the Club Brugge star this season and has decided to join the race to land him.

Fioerentina and Valencia are also keen on the 22-year-old, who has ten goals and four assists in the Belgian First Division this season.

He also scored a fine goal in the Champions League against Monaco – who are now managed by Gunners legend Thierry Henry.

And, according to The Sun, this stunning form will see Emery make a bid for his services in the January transfer window.

The Arsenal manager is said to be keen to add competition to his top two strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The Spanish boss has a lack of options in that department after losing Danny Welbeck to injury for the rest of the season, and he wants to add more depth to his front line.

Wesley has a long-term contract with Brugges, until 2023, but his club could be tempted to cash in with a decent offer.
