The 28-year-old can play in either full back position and will give Pellegrini an option to replace Emerson following his departure to Barcelona.
Pellegrini has already completed a move for Juan Miranda following his loan spell in Andalucia in 2020/21 with Victor Ruiz signing a contract extension.
Algerian international Aissa Mandi is also set for his own extension talks in the coming weeks with his deal expiring at the end of June.
