Arsenal started talks with technically gifted Paris Saint-Germain wide-man

According to the reports from Metro, Arsenal have opened talks over a potential transfer move for Paris Saint-Germain wide-man Lucas Moura, who has been linked with a departure from Parc Des Princes since the last season.

The Italian publication Tuttomercatoweb suggest that Arsene Wenger is a big admirer of the Brazilian star and the Gunners have already taken the initial steps of making contact over a potential deal.

The 24-year-old Lucas Moura is in his fifth season with the League 1 giants having joined in a massive £38m deal from Sao Paulo back in 2012.

The current contract deal of the Brazil international expires in 2019, but he still linked with a move to the north London club.

In Ligue 1, the former Sao Paulo star has scored six goals and provided two assists in 19 matches so far this season.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has contacted Juventus midfield star Miralem Pjanic as Arsenal ready to plot a £28m bid for the midfielder’s signature.

The 26-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international has made 20 apps for the Old Lady this season, scoring six goals in process, as Juve have climbed to the top of Serie A.

Pjanic has been a long-term target for several European top clubs, and The Sun suggest that Arsene Wenger is hoping to get his signature.

It is believed the French manager has called the attacking midfielder to enquire about his future, with Miralem Pjanic giving Wenger hope that a move could materialise.
