Arsenal are understood to be interested in Brazilian striker Lenny and could push through a deal in the New Year.
The highly-rated 20-year-old joined Palmeiras from Fluminense in January but his contract expires next month and he could leave on a free transfer.
He has made just 12 appearances for Palmeiras and has yet to score but it seems he has done enough to impress Arsene Wenger.
Reports suggest that Arsenal have already agreed a pre-contract with Lenny and faxed Palmeiras to make them aware of the situation.
Lenny is expected to be sent on loan to Arsenal's Spanish partners Salamanca for the second half of this season.
Carlos Vela spent the 2006/07 campaign at Salamanca and Brazilian starlet Pedro Botelho is currently with the Segunda Division side.
