Sky Sport Italia claim Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, a sometime target for Milan and Roma, is on the verge of joining Arsenal.
The Spain international turns 25 on Sunday, but has been given only six competitive appearances so far this season.
He had been linked with a Serie A switch to Milan or Roma, but transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio maintains a deal is imminent with the Gunners instead.
Coach Unai Emery already knows Suarez from their time together at Sevilla.
