Wellington Silva is reportedly close to agreeing terms with Arsenal for a contract extension ahead of the transfer window opening, Metro reports.
The Brazilian signed for Arsenal in 2011 from Fluminense but was unable to play due to the absence of a work permit.
But he was granted a Spanish passport last April and he can finally return to Arsenal hoping to enjoy first-team football in Arsene Wenger's squad.
At the start of the year, the 22-year-old said: "It [the Spanish passport] is very important for me.
"I could go back to Arsenal next season if [Arsene] Wenger wants me to.
"But I am not going to worry about my future and my only desire right now is to help Almeria preserve their La Liga status. At this moment, I am focused on the present."
