Arsenal receive boost in race for Brazilian star

Wesley Moraes admits he wants a move to England amid reported interest from Arsenal and a number of other clubs.

The Club Brugge forward has been in brilliant form so far this campaign for the Belgium side, scoring 14 goals and creating nine for his team-mates in all competitions.

Arsenal and Everton are the latest Premier League clubs to be linked with the Brazilian after Cardiff reportedly had a bid rejected by the Jupiler Pro League outfit for his services in January, while Newcastle and West Ham have both been credited with interest.

In an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg (via Sport Witness) a reporter questioned Moraes on his future, they asked: “Do I just list the clubs who are watching you? PSG, Lazio, Everton, Fiorentina, Guangzhou Evergrande, CSKA Moscow, Arsenal… Any preference?”

To which Moraes replied: “I have read all those names. It is of course completely different going to China than to another European country. I don’t know what I want, I don’t want to exclude anything.

“I do know that I once said that I want to go to England and that is still the case. I have always closely followed the Premier League. But I am certainly also open to other leagues.”
