Arsenal have entered advanced talks to secure the signature of Atletico Mineiro’s Brazilian right-back Emerson in January, according to reports.
New Arsenal manager Unai Emery faced a major concern over his options at right-back upon his arrival at the club, following the departure of Arsene Wenger back in May this year.
Even though Emery has been able to secure the services of Stephan Lichtsteiner, the Switzerland international is not being viewed as a long-term option to compete with first-choice full-back Hector Bellerin.
Therefore, the Gunners have chosen to pursue the signature of Brazilian youngster Emerson, who is likely to come at a very low cost.
Reports have claimed that Arsenal are in advanced talks to agree a deal for the teenager to move to the Emirates stadium in the January transfer window.
Premier League rivals Chelsea are also rumoured to be very keen on signing the 19-year-old who is currently on the books of Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.
