Some Arsenal fans have reacted to reports (Mundo Deportivo) linking the club with a move for free agent Dani Alves.
The Brazilian is unattached after seeing out his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and is looking for a new club.
The veteran has just finished up at the Copa America with his country, where he was named Player of the Tournament.
Despite having recently turned 36, it would appear Alves is still near the top of his game, and he could be a real coup for any big side in Europe.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have also been linked with moves for the freebie, with Pep Guardiola no stranger to the full-back from their time at Barcelona together.
With Arsenal only having around £45 million to spend this summer (before player sales), Alves surely appeals massively.
The star’s bulging trophy cabinet shows him to be a serial winner – something the Arsenal dressing room is in desperate need of.
Arsenal fans react
Although some cannot forget how the Stephan Lichtsteiner move worked out, many Gunners supporters are obviously on board with the idea of Alves signing on a free transfer:
Someone with a winning mentality…definitely

People saying Dani Alves on a free is a bad idea, he’s just won Copa America, he’s the first player to win 40 trophies, he got best player in Copa America, yeah he’s old but this guy knows how to win, and would be great back up for Bellerin, I’m all for it !! #arsenal #football

Absolutely would love him

His leadership and relentless attitude is something that this squad could use. Plus hopefully he could help any incoming young Brazilian talent settle at the club.

Not sure comparing this to Lichtsteiner makes sense, Dani Alves is still TOP class. Strong competition for Bellerin.

I definitely would welcome Alves. Still has a bit in him. Definitely a lot better than Lichtsteiner. Would be a very good signing imo.
