Arsenal are deemed to be discussions with the representative of Lucas Moura despite the Brazilian said to be closing in on a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The 25-year-old has been tipped to leave Parc des Princes before the end of the month with manager Unai Emery deeming him surplus to requirements.
Spurs are alleged to have already agreed to match Les Parisiens’ £25m valuation for the winger, but according to L’Equipe, the player’s representative is still in talks with the Gunners.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to be a huge admirer of the talents of the ex-Sao Paulo graduate, but the club have, for now placed their emphasis on signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The north London side are presently £10m short of matching Dortmund’s asking price for the Gabon international, and any impasse in the deal could turn the club’s attention towards Moura.
Moura is capable of playing on either wing, especially on the right side of the attack, and he has been earmarked as the potential alternative before the transfer window concludes.
Arsenal have already secured the signings of two players in Konstantinos Mavropanos and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this month, and the latter is very much certain to make his debut when the Gunners take on Swansea City in the league on Tuesday night.
The FA Cup holders are currently four points off a potential top-four position, and they will be aiming to keep the pressure on Liverpool, who likewise have an away game versus Huddersfield Town.
