The Daily Mail claims that the Brazil international, who is currently on loan at Sao Paulo, wants to return to Europe and would consider the London-based club.

The report suggests that any move from QPR would however, hinge on whether they can rid themselves of Adel Taarabt’s hefty wages, though if that is possible, than manager Harry Redknapp is believed to be keen to do a deal.

<![CDATA[Report: Everton latest club linked with Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato]]>http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/68450_report__everton_latest_club_linked_with_corinthians_forward_alexandre_pato.htmlEverton could be set to make a bid for Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato, according to reports.

Sky Italia claims that the Toffees are considering the Brazil international as a possible replacement for Samuel Eto’o, who has left to join Sampdoria.

Pato is currently set to spend the 2015 Brasileirão season on loan at São Paulo, but despite that agreement already being in place, speculation has continued to link him with the likes of Fiorentina and Queens Park Rangers.

Whether Everton could tempt the 25 year-old to England is currently unclear, while manager Roberto Martinez may prefer a forward who is in better form than Pato to cover for the loss of Eto’o.

<![CDATA[Report: Arsenal set to seal €14.7 million deal for Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista]]>http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/68449_report__arsenal_set_to_seal____14_7_million_deal_for_villarreal_defender_gabriel_paulista.htmlArsenal are set to conclude a deal for Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista.

The La Liga club have confirmed on their official Twitter account that the 24 year-old is set to move to England, with the loan of forward Joel Campbell and a fee believed to be around €14.2 million enough to convince them into a sale.

“Transfer agreed in principle with Arsenal for Gabriel, who will bid farewell before the game. Much luck!” the club posted, as reported by the Guardian. “Welcome joel-campbell12! Agreement reached with Arsenal until the end of the season.”

Gabriel was signed by Villarreal for a reported fee of €3.3 million in August 2013 from Vitória. Since then, he has made 50 appearances for the club.

For the centre-back to complete his move to Arsenal, he will need to be granted a work permit, as he hasn't played enough games for Brazil to automatically qualify for one.

Out of the plans of the club in 2015, Santos are trying to negotiate the Argentine forward soon.
According to Globo Esporte, it's unlikely to see Patito Rodríguez' name in the squad list for the 2015 season because he's not in the plans of coach Enderson Moreira.

Patito arrived at Santos in 2012 as a cover for Neymar who was away with the Brazil Olympic team. Santos own 50% economic-rights of the player who scored just 2 goals for them in 44 appearances.

Aránguiz has turned into a vital player for Internacional but can also leave at any time.
According to UOL Esporte, 70% of the player's economic-rights are owned by Delcir Sonda and Internacional own the remaining 30%. But due to the new rules by FIFA, there's a small uncertainty over his future. When he was signed permanently by the club on the eve of last year's World Cup, there was an agreement with the investor that Internacional will buy a further 20% rights of Aránguiz which is yet to happen and Sonda would press for a transfer to cash in. The report also speculates that, as Aránguiz is a key part of the team, proposals to leave the club can only increase. Inter president Vitório Píffero said: "Sonda is a partner of Internacional and it's not him who sells the player. It's Internacional, the management. I'm sure I won't be pushed [for a transfer]."

<![CDATA[Douglas Costa confirms Shakhtar rejected Chelsea's initial offer]]>http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/68392_douglas_costa_confirms_shakhtar_rejected_chelsea_s_initial_offer.html 

Shakhtar winger Douglas Costa has confirmed that he has a proposal from Chelsea to leave.
Douglas Costa is in Brazil as part of the club's tour and he was contacted by Globo Esporte. He revealed that Shakhtar rejected the first offer from Chelsea but says it's a dream to play for them and that he will try to leave. He told: "Been here for 5 years and the time has come. It's a dream to play for Chelsea and it's a unique chance. I will try to leave." Recall that British press had broken the story that Chelsea had made a £16 million offer for Douglas Costa. It's not the first time that he's wanting to leave, either. Last summer also he had admitted his will to leave Ukraine due to the crisis there.

<![CDATA[Douglas Costa is a £16m Chelsea transfer target]]>http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/68371_douglas_costa_is_a___16m_chelsea_transfer_target.htmlAccording to the Daily Mail Chelsea have launched a £16million bid to sign Douglas Costa from Shakhtar Donetsk. Brazilian midfielder has dual-Portuguese nationality and wants to move.

The 24-year-old, who plays for Ukrainian Shakhtar Donetsk, is said to have been on the Blues’ radar for some time, with the west London club having had him watched from a young age. Indeed, both Chelsea and Manchester United made approaches to sign the midfielder when he was 18.

Costa, who has previously spent two years playing for Brazilian side Gremio, has featured in all six of his side's Champions League games so far this season.

<![CDATA[Arsenal are close to finally signing Gabriel Paulista - Wenger confirmed]]>http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/68367_arsenal_are_close_to_finally_signing_gabriel_paulista_-_wenger_confirmed.htmlArsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has been locked in negotiations this week to bring in the Brazilian defender, and said during his weekly press conference he was hopeful of doing business.

Wenger said: “[It’s] 50-50 at this moment, yes. We respect the rules in England. When you buy a player who does not fulfil the criteria and needs a work permit, you go in front of a commission and they tell you yes or no.

“We will accept that, we have to respect the rules that are in this country. After are the rule sight or not, that can be discussed. At the moment the rules are like that, you have to go in front of a committee for a work permit.

“The talks are progressing quite well, to be serious. I don’t think there’s need to say much more. We are talking at the moment, can we find an agreement or not? I don’t know. We are slowly progressing but there’s a chance.

“We are ready to pay the price we think is right for a good player, no matter what the price is. If we think it’s the right price we will pay.”


But because Paulista is not a European Union citizen and has yet to establish himself as a senior Brazil international, he would not meet the automatic work permit criteria.

Arsenal would have to convince a Football Association hearing that the defender was an "exceptional talent" and so should be granted permission to work in the United Kingdom.

Few days ago, Fred's teammate Darío Conca had received an offer from China and asked the club to release him. In the mean time, Fluminense are preparing a renewal offer for Fred but a deal is unlikely because of their financial situation.
