Fagner refuses to rule out European move


During the last month, Fox Sports has reported that Arsenal have been tracking Corinthians and Brazilian international right-back Fagner.

The 30-year-old is currently contracted to the club until 2022 and had been linked with a move to Barcelona in 2016.

In a press conference, Fagner revealed that he hasn’t received any official offers for his services.

“No, honestly so far nothing has come, I am not aware of anything. I was focused on Copa America, just as I’m going back to Corinthians to help in the best way possible.

“If something arrives, my agent will let me know. My head is 100 per cent with Corinthians.”

However, Fagner would not rule out a potential European move.

“It’s hard to close the door, right? As I always say, I am very happy at Corinthians, building this beautiful story.

“I don’t want to say that I want to leave, but in football, things happen from day-to-day.

“I know having gone to the national team, things can happen or they may not happen…it did not happen after the World Cup.

“My head is here and I want to get better and win more titles.”

Fagner has made nine appearances for the Brazilian national team and has been at Corinthians since January 2014.
