One is Pablo Mari of flamengo and the other player is shakhtar Donestsk’s Nikolai Matvienko.
The former had travelled down to London for his medical and it looked life he would join Mikel Arteta’s side.
However, the deal stalled and he returned back to Brazil. Talk have continued between the teams and it now appears that the deal is back on.
With regards to matvienko, star sports is claiming that Arsenal also has a plan to sign the Ukrainian from shakhtar. The report claims that the gunners already have an agreement with his club in place to sign the defender but they are yet to decide on completing the move.
But could the gunners be signing two defenders this month?
