Reported Arsenal target Bruno Fuchs has been tipped for a “spectacular career” by fellow Internacional defender Victor Cuesta, in conversation with Esporte Interativo.
DAZN commentator Gustavo Fogaca recently told Italian outlet Milan News that Arsenal have joined AC Milan and Porto in scouting the 21-year-old centre-back.
Fuchs, who stands an impressive 6ft 3in tall, could be signed for a very modest figure of 2m Euro to 5m Euro (between £1.8million and £4.5million), speculates Fogaca.
To date, Fuchs has made 14 senior appearances for Internacional and six for Brazil’s Under-23s, and is considered as one of the most up-and-coming prospects in Brazilian football.
“I think Bruno has a huge future ahead of him,” Cuesta told Esporte Interativo. “think if he continues to work this way, playing the same way, he will have a spectacular career. It is up to him to keep his feet on the ground.
“He knows what quality he has. Football today also requires other things. Be professional, take care, train hard. But he has a good head on his shoulders and I think he can do it. Without a doubt, he will be a national team player.”
Arsenal have done well with two signings from Brazil over the past 12 months – Gabriel Martinelli has been a revelation, while Pablo Mari has looked promising so far.
Now, Edu could potentially work his magic once again to bring another gem to Arsenal from his home country, a high-calibre young player with plenty of potential and a modest reportedly price tag.
With Fuchs’ teammate singing his praises, it bodes well for the future if the Gunners do manage to get their hands on him, though there’s fairly stiff competition in the shape of Milan and Porto.
