Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that they are considering selling midfielder Luiz Gustavo - news that will excite Arsenal.
According to Rummenigge, the Brazil international is free to leave the European Champions only if the price is right.
And Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is known to be a huge admirer of Gustavo, is looking to bolster his squad ahead of the new Premier League season.
The midfielder by trade, who can also play centre-back and left-back, has admitted himself he is likely leave Bayern after increased fierce competition from new signings Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze.
Gustavo has been attracting attention for England, Italy and Germany but has yet to reveal his future plans. He spoke after in side's 2-0 victory over Sao Paulo earlier this summer and said: "Until August 31, anything is possible."
The Gunners have yet to capture any big-name signings this summer, and are tied in a transfer saga with Liverpool over striker Luis Suarez. But current Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has urged fans to be patient for signings.
"It will happen, I have no doubts about it. It takes time but I know the boss is working really hard on it and the board as well," the Spaniard, who arrived at the Emirates on transfer deadline day in August 2011, commented.
