Arsenal will enter a bidding war with AC Milan and Juventus next month in a fight for hotly-rated Sao Paulo midfielder Casemiro.

Samba magic: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keeping tabs on Casemiro
The Brazilian, who despite his age has already been capped at senior international level, can fit into any number of positions across the middle with power a key part of his game.
The teenager played 12 games in a stuttering campaign for Tricolor Paulista, scoring once, but remains one of the most sought after players in his homeland.
Arsene Wenger has a history of doing business with Sao Paulo having lured the then Brazil Under 21 captain Denilson to north London in 2006.
That, though, hasn”t proved to be a hugely successful move, with the pedestrian-paced midfielder now back at his first club on loan.
