England coach Unai Emery plans to snatch a deal from Barcelona.
The French website le10sport said Emery wanted to attract Adrian Rabio, a Paris Saint-Germain player, to the ranks.
Rabio has been a target for FC Barcelona since last summer's transfer, and the Catalan club is joining him for free this summer.
Rabio's contract with Saint Germain ends at the end of the season and the player has not renewed his contract with the French capital.
According to the report, Emery wants to convince Rabio to choose the Gangers, taking advantage of his relationship with the player where he was trained in the ranks of St. Germain, before leaving the French team, and the task of training Arsenal after Arsene Wenger.
