Reported Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur target Bernard has today uploaded a photo to his Instagram account, taken in the Park Lane hotel in London. The picture above shows the 20-year old Brazil international posing with friends in the London hotel. One of his friends tagged in the photo also uploaded a photo of the group during their flight over to London last night: The question now is whether the Brazil international is solely on holiday with friends in London or whether he will be in talks with either of the London clubs he has been linked to this summer. Bernard currently plays for Atlético Mineiro in Brazil where he began his career a couple of seasons ago. Last month the Brazilian side defeated Paraguayan side Olimpia to win the 2013 Copa Libertadores the South American equivalent of the Champions League. In June, Bernard was part of the Brazil squad that won the 2013 Confederations Cup, defeating Spain 3-0 in the final. Bernard has 5 caps for the Brazil national team and he has a highly-rated, energetic midfielder. Arsenal had been strongly linked with a £21 million move for the Brazilian international only last month, whilst Chelsea and Tottenham have also been mentioned as potential buyers. He has also been strongly linked with a move to Ukrainian Premier League side Shakhtar Donetsk.
