According to UOL journalist Paulo Vinicius Coelho, Arsenal could land 18-year-old Bahia midfielder Ramires in January.
Ramires, whose full name is Eric dos Santos Rodrigues, has broken in the Bahia first team this season.
Ramires, who wears the number six for his current employers, has played 11 matches for Bahia this season.
Paulo Vinicius Coelho reports that while Atletico Madrid have watched Ramires twice, Arsenal have scouted the midfielder on six occasions.
No transfer fee is detailed in the UOL report.
For the record, ‘Chelsea’s Ramires’ is currently plying his trade in China with Jiangsu Suning.
UOL reveal that Adidas have Ramires as one of their representatives.
However a few weeks ago, in renewal talks between the global manufacturer and the footballer, Adidas sent a more senior representative than usual to meet with the player.
UOL float the rumour that Adidas are seeking to sign Ramires up to a global contract, which hints at the possible move to Arsenal.
