Arsenal and have joined in pursuing left back , according to Sky Sport 24 in Italy (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Brazilian played both as a left back and on the left wing for the Ligue One side last campaign, and he could be seen as an ideal wing back option by manager Arsene Wenger if the Gunners persist with a three man backline next season.

The 23 year old has been in France for just a year after joining from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes for £1.7m, but his performances on the left flank for Nice have led to many clubs to sit up and take notice.

Last campaign, the full back made 38 appearances, and provided four assists as Nice finished third behind Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue One. With Nice being bankrolled by a Chinese consortium, and competition for the player’s signature high, it seems likely he will command a sizeable transfer fee this summer.
