Still engaged in Tokyo 2020 Olympic football tournament, 23-year old Brazilian international deep-lying midfielder Bruno Guimarães is being pursued by an increasing number of clubs all around Europe. To this end, Olympique Lyonnais management, according to latest French news, have been targeted by Arsenal and Juventus; both sides have approached the 1997-born playmaker through roughly 30 million euros' worth bids, and both have been turned down by Ligue 1 giants, planning to keep Athletico Paranaense alumni in.

While Borussia Dortmund might be making a move as well, Guimarães, equipped with a dual Spanish citizenship, is playing for Lyon since February 2020, and is still on a deal with Les Gones until June 2024. Purchased on a 20 million euros transfer fee back then, Lyon are planning to let him leave on at least twice the sum. Anyway, something might change once the player's back from Japan.
