Arsene Wenger Interested to Sign Free Agent Mineiro

Free agent Brazilian midfielder Carlos Luciano da Silva who is widely known as Mineiro is now training with Arsenal reserves and the out-of-contract midfielder has recently participated in a friendly match for Arsenal XI that defeated Fulham reserves 3-0. The world cup winning midfielder has left German club Hertha BSC Berlin in Summer and he is now looking for a new club to join. The 33-year-old also attracted interests from Birmingham City.

Upon knowing the fact that Mineiro was available to sing, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently invited Mineiro to visit the club and training ground and the player already started training with Arsenal reserves. Arsenal is yet to come to terms with the departures of Lassana Diarra, Gilberto and Mathew Flamini that left a mark on Arsenal midfield. Wenger recruited young players like Amaury Bischoff and Aaron Ramsey to fill up the gap in the middle of the park. An experienced holding midfielder might bolster Arsenal squad and will make the Gunners squad stronger. Mineiro is a skilled midfielder with huge experience of playing both at club level as well as for Brazil team. He has 25 international appearances under his cap and has been playing professional football for about ten years.

Now, Arsene Wenger will reportedly assess Mineiro’s fitness before making a serious deal in this regard. To be honest, I do not know much about Mineiro, so I do not have any idea whether Mineiro will fit well with Arsenal’s style of football. However, Wenger must know what he wants from whom and he also knows it very well that who can do what for the club. So, if Wenger finds something valuable in him, only then Mineiro will be offered a contract.
