Arsenal and Chelsea reportedly hold an interest in signing young Brazilian defender Emerson, who currently represents Atletico Mineiro.

Arsenal and Chelsea have reportedly identified Atletico Mineiro defender Emerson as a potential signing.

Both of the Premier League giants have enjoyed a strong start to the season, but it appears that the search is on for players who can feature at right-back in the future.

According to O Tempo, the Gunners and the Blues have been left impressed by the progress of Emerson in Brazil's top flight.

The form of the 19-year-old has led to scouts from England making the trip to South America, and offers for the prospect could be made in the January transfer window.

The report suggests that a bid in the region of £8m could be accepted by Mineiro, who are currently experiencing financial difficulties.
