Rio de Janeiro: Brazil international midfielder Bernard is reportedly being pursued by English Premier league club Arsenal.
`The Gunners` are considering accepting Atletico Mineiro`s 25 million euro price tag for the 20-year-old, reports Xinhua.
Bernard, a part of Brazil`s triumphant Confederations Cup team last month, has also attracted interest from Chelsea, Tottenham, Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk. Any deal involving the playmaker is likely to be delayed until after the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final between Atletico Mineiro and Paraguay`s Olimpia July 24.
It has been a very tough decision for me to make which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup.
