|Arsenal are preparing a bid for Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira, according to reports in Portugal.|
Arsene Wenger is on the hunt for a defensive midfielder following injuries to Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin and has reportedly sent scouts to Porto to check out the 24-year-old.
And, according to O Jogo, Arsenal have been impressed by the Portuguese international and are now ready to make a swoop for him next month.
Porto are likely to be reluctant sellers, having only signed Pereira from Maritimo last summer, but may be tempted by a big-money offer.
