Alves Speaks Out As Reports Of Arsenal Switch Gain Momentum

Dani Alves

Dani Alves has said he is ready for his next challenge following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Despite being 36 years of age, the right-back was first choice for Brazil as his country won the Copa America earlier this month.

Alves says he is a winner and will be up to the task no matter who he signs for on a free transfer:

“Now I’m free, but I still have a lot to accomplish in my career. The only thing that I can say is that the club that sign me will sign a true champion.”

Arsenal are said to be among the teams interested in the veteran fullback, along with rivals Tottenham and Manchester City.

Gunners boss Unai Emery will go into next season with Ainsley Maitland-Niles as his only option at right-back with Hector Bellerin unlikely to be fit for the start of the campaign.

With Stephan Lichtsteiner also having left the club, Alves could be seen as a decent short-term solution to reinforce the squad at a low price.

Emery has also worked with the Brazilian international before, having managed him during his final season in charge at PSG.
