Arsenal consider move to sign 22-year-old Barcelona forward – report
Arsenal are pondering a move to sign Barcelona forward Jose Arnaiz in the January transfer window, say reports
Arsenal are “seriously” considering a transfer move to try and sign Barcelona forward Jose Arnaiz, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that the Gunners are keeping tabs on the 22-year-old attacker and that they are ready to match the Spaniard’s release clause.
The attacker has struggled to break into the first team at Barcelona and it is claimed that he could follow the likes of Cesc Fabregas in seeking a move away from Camp Nou.
He has scored six goals in 18 appearances for Barcelona’s B team in the Segunda Division in Spain so far this season.
Arsenal are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the north London side consider bolstering their attacking options in the mid-season transfer window.
It remains to be seen whether the Gunners will do much business as Arsene Wenger considers adding to his squad in the new year.
Arsenal are aiming to at least break back into the top four this season after the north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term and missed out on Champions League qualification.
They did, however, win the FA Cup for the third time in four years last season.
