Colombian journalist Diego Rueda has claimed that Porto midfielder Juan Fernando Quintero is set to travel to London on Monday to discuss the possibility of a move to the Emirates.
Es real la posibilidad de que Juan Fernando Quintero juegue con el Arsenal. Estaría llegando el lunes a Londres. Ojalá se concrete.

His tweet reads: “The possibility of Juan Fernando Quintero to play for Arsenal is real. He will fly to London on Monday.”
Rory Smith of The Times has also claimed,
The 21-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders in the Primeira Liga, who joined FC Porto from Atletico Nacional in 2013 following a year-long loan spell with Italian side Pescara. He has made 22 Portuguese league appearances for Porto last season.
Meanwhile – The Mirror says the Colombian international is thought to be worth around £16 million.
Assuming – Quintero is joining Arsenal, then he’d be yet another great signing by Wenger. The attacking midfielder is capable of playing on the left wing and is known for his superb pace and skill.
