Today we've been linked with a player called "Carvalho de Oliveira Amauri". A handful of a name, better known as Amauri. Brazilian born, but yet to be capped.
Amauri is an striker, likened to Batistuta with more pace, and currently plays for Palermo in Serie A. He is going to turn 28 next month, so slightly on the older scale of someone Arsene would usually sign. But if a quality player is available at the price is right, cite Gallas, he'll surely bring them in.
I'm don't think the link is that strong, as his current team are asking in the region of £18m for the striker... but we've sent some scouts to see him, so maybe there is something there...
I'd prefer David Villa for the same money if available, let's see what happens...]]>
