Arsenal are looking to complete another loan signing, after completing the move for Pablo Mari, the Athletic reports.
The Gunners are poised to land Mari from Flamengo on loan after Mikel Arteta made it clear to the board he needed a new centre-back.
Mari ticks the box as a left-footed defender, which was requested by Arteta when he took charge at Arsenal.
However, the club could add another player, most likely on loan, before the transfer deadline on Friday.
Arteta is also keen on a full-back and Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a late move for Southampton defender Cedric Soares.
