Luiz Gustavo: Bayern Munich midfielder is interesting Arsenal

Talks are at an advanced stage despite the fact the midfielder, who was part of Brazil's Confederations Cup squad this summer, is away on international duty.

Gustavo started just 16 Bundesliga games for treble-winning Bayern last season and has seen his chances of first-team football hit further by the signing of Thiago Alcantara.

Wolfsburg were close to signing the 26-year-old, but it is understood he would prefer to move to a team in the Champions League.

Arsenal face competition for the player, and reports in Germany suggest he is still weighing up his options.

Abendzeitung Muenchen quote Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as saying: "Luiz has offers from England, Spain, Russia and Germany. The player has not made a decision yet."

As Arsenal await a marquee signing which may or may not materialise before the September 2 closure of the transfer window, Arsene Wenger believes it is important to look at the players he does have available for the start of the season.

"We are in the transfer market and we try still to strengthen our squad," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"It's important as well now to focus on the squad who are already at the club and that you focus on the competition, not only on the transfer market."

Arsenal start their Premier League campaign with a home game against Aston Villa.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
