Reports are out claiming that Corinthians chief Edu admits Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has asked about Alexandre Pato.
Reports in Brazil have claimed that Wenger is a big admirer of the forward, who has been linked with Tottenham and West Ham.
Edu has increased talk of an imminent bid from the north Londoners by claiming that Wenger enquired about the former AC Milan star during his recent visit to London.
“I wasn’t there to tout him around but if people ask about him, I’m going to answer,” the former Arsenal midfielder said.
“I talked and they asked questions – not just about him, but about a few of our players. They know them well.
“I had lunch with Arsene Wenger and he asked about [Pato] and about others.”
