Arsenal in the competition to sign a 32 years Old Brazilian professional footballer

Arsenal have reportedly held talks over a potential move to sign Barcelona goalkeeper Neto.

That is according to a British newspaper to the Daily Mail, who claim that the Gunners are still looking to bring in another shot-stopper.

Arsenal purchased Aaron Ramsdale last month, but the Germany international Bernd Leno now wants to quit the club.

That means a successor would be needed to challenge Aaron, and Neto, who still has more than 18 months on his Camp Nou deal, is one of the players discussed.

Blaugrana’s financial chaos has been well-documented. The club lost Lionel Messi in the summer and still need to cut their wage bill.

eSport3, a part of Catalunya Radio, claimed last week that the Catalans will soon approach the Brazilian to take a pay cut.

Both Philippe Coutinho and Neto allegedly voted against restructuring salaries in light of the global pandemic.

Mikel Arteta’s side looked into landing Neto over the summer, but the Gunners signed Ramsdale instead.

The Athletic state that Neto did not want to be second-choice at the Emirates, hence the star’s lack of interest in the move.

The Premier League heavyweights would still want him to primarily be experienced competition for Aaron.
