VIDEO: Arsenal free transfer target nets free-kick in win

Diego scored a deflected free-kick in Wolfsburg’s 3-1 victory over Stuttgart on Saturday.

Wolfsburg recorded a 3-1 victory over Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with reported Arsenal target Diego netting the second goal in the win.

The Brazilian playmaker is out of contract in the summer, and has already admitted that he would like to move to the Premier League.

Arsenal and Southampton have been linked with approaches for the former Atletico Madrid schemer, who will be available to sign a pre-contract agreement come January.

The South American midfielder is adept at set pieces, however his latest effort was a touch fortuitous as it took a significant deflection off the Stuttgart wall.

The Brazilian has started 13 Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg this season, with this strike his second goal of the campaign.

Diego played alongside Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil at Werder Bremen, and it is believed that Arsene Wenger wants to rekindle the pair’s footballing relationship with a free transfer move this summer.
