Lens forward Jussie has been watched by Arsenal scouts, according to sources in France.
The Brazilian, full name Jussie Ferreyra Vieira, impressed watching Highbury observers during last month's clash with Paris Saint Germain at Parc des Princes.
Lens won 4-3 with Jussie one of the goalscorers, and it has been claimed that Arsenal will continue to monitor his form as he adapts fully to life in Ligue 1.
The former Brazil Under-21 international left Cruzeiro to try his luck in France, after a previous spell in Japan with Kawisha Reysol in 2003.
Arsene Wenger has built a reputation for unearthing gems from European leagues, particularly his native France, and the 22-year-old will be looking to maintain his current progress in order to catch the Gunners manager's eye.
