Arsenal are watching Atletico Mineiro midfielder Bernard's situation.

The Daily Star says according to sources on the continent, the 20-year-old has become a summer target for the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger is said to be keen to sign the pacy winger up to kick-start Arsenal's transfer drive.

Tottenham were thought to be very interested in bringing Bernard to White Hart Lane, but have since splashed the cash for his international team-mate Paulinho.
