Report: Dani Alves would prefer to join Arsenal over Tottenham, wage demands outlined

The Brazilian would relish the chance of a reunion with Gunners boss Unai Emery.

Dani Alves would prefer a reunion with Arsenal boss Unai Emery this summer as he weighs up his next move.

The free-agent has indicated that he would be willing to take a pay-cut to force through a move to the Emirates Stadium, according to The Sun.

Alves departed Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season and would sign for the Gunners on £200,000 per-week.

Alves spent his first year in the French capital playing under the management of Emery and would love a crack at English football before retirement.

The 36-year-old helped Brazil to the Copa America title earlier this month and is now plotting his next move.

 

The Gunners have offloaded Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, Petr Cech, David Ospina and Stephan Lichtsteiner this summer. In total, those departures have trimmed £410,000 from the wage budget (The Sun).

TBR Verdict

In what has been a frustrating season for Arsenal supporters, the signing of Alves could put some smiles on a few faces.

Although the right-back would only be a short-term fix for Emery, his quality is still evident.

He is still a frequent member of the Brazil squad, despite his age, and would be a quality addition for Arsenal.

Emery knows all about his qualities as a player.

Having balanced the books considerably this summer with player departures, £200,000 per-week for a year or two might not be bad business for the Gunners.
