Arsenal and Tottenham target Bernard pictured in London hotel

Atlético Mineiro star Bernard has fuelled speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League by uploading a picture of him at a London hotel on Monday.

The Brazil international has been heavily linked with moves to Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, but is expected to hold talks with Shakhtar Donetsk in the near future.

Mineiro president Alexandre Kalil revealed both London sides have failed in their attempts to land Bernard so far as Shakhtar are the only side to have met his €25 million asking price.

However, Bernard has insisted that nothing will be finalised during his imminent trip to the club.

And his reluctance to commit to the Ukrainian outfit has resulted in fresh reports linking him with a switch to England, which have been further fuelled by his appearance at the Park Lane Hotel.

Bernard, who has been capped five times by the Seleção, posted the picture of him poising in an elevator with five friends, one of whom is understood to be his agent, on Instagram.
