Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool chase Shakhtar star - report
Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all considering a move for Shakhtar striker Luíz Adriano according to reports in England.
The Daily Mail claims that the Premier League clubs have been tracking the Brazilian for more than a year and watched the player during Shahktar's 3-2 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Shakhtar's Brazilian contingent have all come under speculation linklng them with moves to England, with Fernandinho and Willian also linked to Chelsea and Manchester City.
Luíz Adriano has been in fine form for the Ukrainians, netting 45 times in 107 appearances for the club.
The newspaper also claims that Adriano was offered to Arsenal in the summer window but the club instead opted to buy French striker Olivier Giroud.
A stumbling block for any move would be the UK's stringent work permit rules, as none of the Brazilians at Shahktar are likely to qualify although the Daily Mail believes that Adriano's agents are putting together a strong case.
