Gunners close in on Portuguese star !

Amaury Bischoff's move from Werder Bremen to Arsenal is imminent according to the player.

Bischoff is yet to break into the first team at the Bundesliga club but has greatly impressed in the U 23 squad where he has made over 60 appearances. He is yet to decide whether to play for France or Portugal on an international level as he has trained with both squads at youth level.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly been tracking the 21 year old since he was a youngster at Strasbourg and the Arsenal manager is obviously pleased with the progress he has made as his move to the Gunners is expected to be completed in the next few days.
