Arsenal are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Brazilian defender Emerson from Atletico Minero in January, according to Fox Sports Asia.
The 19-year-old right back has been impressive this season in the Brazilian Serie A and the Gunners now see him as a possible long-term option for the right side of their defence.
The Gunners signed Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus in the summer to serve as back up for Hector Bellerin, but while he has been very useful so far this season, he is unlikely to stay long at the club.
He was signed on a short-term deal, and at 34 it is not expected that he would be offered an extension, hence the need for a long-term solution.
