Playing for Olympique Lyonnais since 2019/20 second half, Brazilian international deep-lying midfielder Bruno Guimarães, currently engaged into the Olympics football tournament, is growing into more and more of a major target for Arsenal, according to GloboEsporte. While the request upon him is set at 40 million euros, Gunners are so far offering slightly more than half that sum.

Besides, Athletico Paranaense alumni, still on a deal with French club until June 2024, is tracked by Borussia Dortmund as well. Worth 30 million euros, according to Transfermarkt.de, Guimarães might however end up staying put, especially if Lyon comply into handing Houssem Aouar out instead. Throughout his course with Les Gones, the 1997-born playmaker has so far capped 44 times in official games, scoring three goals therein.
