The Gremio winger has been linked with a move to the Gunners after starring for Brazil in the Copa America.
Reports this week have suggested a deal has been agreed as Arsenal look to add width to their squad.
Unai Emery wanted to bring in Wilfried Zaha but he looks to have been priced out of a move after Crystal Palace demanded £80m.
Everton is believed to be their next target and it seems he’s already getting to know the Arsenal squad.
Eagle-eyed Instagram users noticed that the 23-year-old followed fellow Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli on the app.
Martinelli joined Arsenal earlier this summer and he scored his first goal for the club during their 3-0 win over Colorado Rapids this week.
And fans are convinced Everton’s activity is a clue he’s set to sign for Arsenal.
One supporter posted the news on Reddit and was met with streams of excited responses.
“It’s so happening folks.”

While a final supporter believes Martinelli was crucial in securing the deal.
“Agent Martinelli coming in handy,” they said.
