Arsenal are one of three clubs targeting contract rebel Bernard.
The Shakhtar Donestk winger is refusing to sign an extension on his current deal, which runs out in June 2018.
TransferMarketWeb claim the Gunners, as well as Inter Milan and Hebei China Fortune, are interested in adding the 25-year-old to their ranks.
A deceptive and skilful winger, Bernard has excelled at the Ukrainian giants since moving from his native Brazil four-and-a-half years ago.
Bernard has made fourteen appearances for Brazil, however, his last cap came in 2014.
