Arsenal set to anger Liverpool and sign up absolute bargain

Arsenal are set to anger Liverpool by beating them to a deal for Benfica’s experienced full-back Maxi Pereira.

Liverpool had looked certain to wrap up a deal for 30-year-old Pereira in the new year, with the club looking for a replacement for Glen Johnson.

However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also in the hunt for the defenders signature, and the Metro website says his Gunners side are looking to get a cut-priced deal wrapped up.

The Uruguayan’s contract is up at the end of the season, and he looks certain to be allowed to move on this January. © 2017 Frontier Theme
