Arsenal have approached Barcelona in a bid to sign right-back, Sergino Dest, according to Sport.
The Gunners are in the market for a fullback, as Hector Bellerin is reportedly keen to leave the club this summer.
Serie A champions Inter Milan have already registered their interest in Bellerin, as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi who has signed for Paris Saint-Germain.
Arsenal are among the clubs who made an enquiry for Dest at the end of last season.
Bayern Munich and Juventus also made approaches, but it is believed Dest wants to remain at Camp Nou.
Barcelona, however, are desperate to offload players in order to balance their finances and the sale of Dest could bring in a €30 million (£25.7m) transfer fee.
The LaLiga giants signed Dest in a €26.2m (£23.8m) deal from Ajax last October.
