Arsenal swoop for Santos

The 28-year-old has 22 caps for Brazil

Arsenal are believed to be closing in on the signing of Fenerbahce left-back Andre Santos for a fee believed to be just over £6 million.

Reports in Turkey are suggesting that the Brazilian is currently in London undergoing a medical and discussing personal terms ahead of his proposed move.

Having already sold Gael Clichy to Manchester City this summer and allowed Armand Traore to talk with Queens Park Rangers it is expected that the Santos would slot straight into Arsene Wenger’s starting XI.

The 28-year-old has 22 caps for Brazil and played in all four of Brazil’s games at the recent Copa America tournament in Argentina. He signed for the Turkish club in July 2009 for a fee of €9 million and has since made over 50 appearances scoring 10 goals in the process.
