Arsenal have made contact with Atletico Mineiro regarding the transfer of Douglas Santos, reports in Brazil say.

The 22-year-old left-back has attracted plenty of interest around Europe, with Barcelona also keen.

The Catalan giants view him as an ideal back-up option to Jordi Alba who can provide some serious competition for him.

But while Barcelona are yet to make formal contact with the Brazilian side, Arsenal have contacted Atletico.

It’s expected that Douglas would cost in the region of £7.7million and Atletico are braced to lose him this summer, according to Brazilian outlet Hoje Em Dia.
