Liverpool and Arsenal have made enquiries with the representatives of Brazilian midfielder Bernard who has been a free agent.
The ex-Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder is now without a team after his five-year deal in Ukraine expired.
The 25-year-old midfielder is weighing up his options as he wants the new challenge.
And a number of teams across Europe have been sounded out over potential move.
West Ham and Chinese Super League teams have also expressed interest in Brazilian star.
However, the most high-profile approaches appear to have come from English top-tier big boys Liverpool and Arsenal.
The two English teams have made enquiries, according to the Brazilian outlet UOL, with Bernard is available for free.
However, neither Liverpool or Arsenal are believed to have followed up their advances with proposals.
It is reported Bernard had hoped to have attracted more offers from top European teams.
Liverpool and Arsenal’s Premier League rivals West Ham United cannot offer that after they finished 13 in the English top-tier.
UOL add Bernard is still considering a move to West Ham but now Arsenal and Liverpool have joined the race of his signature.
