Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva has been tipped to move out of the club this summer and as per the latest rumours, Arsenal are interested in signing him.
Transferchecker’s Twitter account claims: “Arsenal are interested in signing Bernardo Silva from Man City.
“Bernardo Silva had his heart set on a summer move to Barcelona, but that looks impossible now. Man City need to sell a high profile attacker in order to bring in Kane and Grealish.
“Atletico Madrid and Arsenal have been alerted to Silva’s availability and are both interested.”

Are Arsenal serious about signing Bernardo Silva?
Bernardo Silva has seen his importance drop at Manchester City during the 2020-21 season as he played in only 26 Premier League games for the Citizens.
The playmaker’s current deal expires in 2025 but it seems like he does not want to hang around at Man City any longer.
The news of the 26-year-old seeking an exit has heightened the senses of several clubs and Arsenal just happen to be one of them.

Irrespective of whether there is any truth in this or not but there’s no way Arsenal will be able to convince Bernardo Silva to join them.
Silva just won the Premier League with Manchester City and the last thing he will want to do is join Arsenal, a club which finished eighth on the league table last season.
Also, Arsenal will not be playing in Europe next campaign making things even harder for the North London side.
Silva is currently valued at £63 million – a fee which the Gunners will find really hard to meet and since his current deal expires in 2025, Manchester City will be in no mood to offer a discount.
