The 20-year-old midfielder is said to have watched by Gunners scouts on a number of occasions over the last few years and has impressed with his development.

It is understood that Corinthians want around £9million for the youngster but that they will demand he returns on loan as part of the deal.

Maycon is also wanted by Serie A outfit Napoli, among a number of other European clubs.

A source told The Sun: “Arsenal are very interested in Maycon. He has been watched a fair amount for more than a year.

“They have been impressed and he has a promising future. He is not really a player for now.

“There could be issues with getting him a visa. It would take a lot of work behind the scenes to get sorted.

“Arsenal have other priorities, so it could be one that happens in the summer, rather than now.”
