The transfer rumor mill never stops, not even on Christmas. Yesterday, it was Mohamed Elneny linked with the Gunners. Today, Portuguese sports news source O Jogo is supposedly running quotes from Arsenal scout Luis Boa Morte that Arsenal are interested in signing FC Porto's defensive midfielder Danilo Pereira. I say supposedly because I cannot read Portuguese. Here's a picture of it.

As of yet, Danilo had never been linked to us. There were numerous people saying Arsenal were scouting Danilo's teammate, Ruben Neves. Apparently that was off? Who knows.

Danilo is a Portuguese international as of this year so, that's good, I suppose. Doesn't seem realistic to me that an Arsenal scout would go on record about a potential target at this point, but what do I know? Yet another name to keep an eye on as we near the January transfer window.
