Arsenal have made a £17.2 million bid for Bayern Munich star Luiz Gustavo, according to Sky Sports.
Gustavo, who only started 16 Bundesliga matches for the German giants last season, has seen himself fall further down in the pecking order, after the club signed Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona.
It had appeared that Wolfsburg were close to signing the Brazil international, however Gustavo is thought to want a move to a Champions League club.
Arsene Wenger is yet to make a major signing this summer, despite reportedly having large funds available to invest in players.
And now Arsenal could bring the Confederations Cup winner to the Emirates, although a number of German clubs are also interested in the star.
With the Premier League season beginning this weekend, Gunners fans will be hoping a deal for Gustavo can be sealed in the near future.
The north London outfit start their league campaign at home to Aston Villa.
