Premier League club Arsenal would have to confront stiff competition in their bid to sign the highly rated Fiorentina midfielder Felipe Melo.
The Gunners’ interest in the skillful Brazilian medio has earned interest from Arsenal, who are seemingly on the verge of making a bid for the 25-year old. The creative midfielder had earlier played for Spanish clubs Real Mallorca, Racing Santander and Almeria.
But according to the player’s agent, Arsenal are not the only club to have expressed an interest in the player. If Jose Rodrigo Bastos is to be trusted, then the London side would have to stave off the challenge of another European powerhouse.
Bastos said, “Felipe could become one of the great names of European football. Fiorentina have already taken steps to keep him by improving his contract.
“Apart from Arsenal, another powerhouse of European football has shown interest in Felipe.
“I believe that if he continues to play at these high levels then Fiorentina will have difficulty in retaining him.”
The question then is which is this mystery club? Any clue, anyone of you?
