We could soon be seeing Alexis Sanchez and Neymar alongside each other at the Emirates, with a friendly between Chile and Brazil set to take place in March, as reported by the Daily Mail.
We will be playing host to a number of stars, with the likes of Neymar, Oscar, Willian, and Alexis Sanchez all set to be in action on the 29th.
The friendly is set to be a warm up ahead of the Copa America, but the game itself is likely to be anything but friendly.
They last met in the World Cup this past summer, with Brazil progressing after a tense penalty shoot-out was needed to decide the result.

- Willian reveals he has been left ‘frustrated’ by his start at Arsenal
A match of this size can mean nothing but good things for Arsenal, and cheif executive Ivan Gazidis knows just how important this kind of publicity can be.
“Everyone at Arsenal is proud to once again be hosting a high profile international match at Emirates Stadium,” he said.
“The national teams of Brazil and Chile have many fantastic players and the match will give football fans the opportunity to watch an international friendly of the highest calibre.
“It’s a compliment to both Arsenal and Emirates Stadium that we will once again be hosting a fixture of this magnitude.”
Although yet to be capped, our new signing Gabriel Paulista will be hoping his big money move to the Emirates will elevate him into the picture for an international call up.
The friendly against Chile is likely to be too soon for him, but perhaps he can aim for a Copa America appearance at the close of the season.
