According to French publication L’Equipe, representatives of Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Jadson have travelled to London today to discuss a potential move to Arsenal.
The 27-year-old Brazilian international, who took part in this summer’s Copa America, has spent the last six years plying his trade in the Ukraine having moved to Eastern Europe in 2005 from homeland side Clube Atletico Paranaense.
An experienced operator, who can play either in the centre or on the right side of midfield, Jadson has garnered considerable success in Donetsk winning 5 league titles and helping the Donbass Arena outfit to the 2009 UEFA Cup title.
It is understood that Jadson is under contract until December 2014, but an offer between €8m and €10m could be enough to lure him to pastures new and still afford Arsenal the chance to make further manoeuvres in the transfer market.
Arsene Wenger and Shakhtar boss Mircea Lucescu did business as recently as last year when the Gunners sold Croatian striker Eduardo to the Ukrainian giants.
