Arsenal are reportedly set to land young Barcelona prodigy as supposed Mikel Arteta’s replacement.
According to the reports, the Gunners are set to swoop for talented Barcelona defensive midfielder Sergi Samper this summer.
Samper who is a product of Barca’s La Masia academy, is also reportedly keen on making the switch to north London, following the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral who swapped Nou Camp for the Emirates Stadium
According to Spanish media, Suggest Arsenal Chief could pay the 20-year-old release clause to land him this summer.
The 20-year-old is a highly rated defensive midfielder star, and should a deal to sign him materialise this summer, he would feature as a cover to Francis Coquelin.
However, the report says Barcelona prefer a loan deal rather than an outright buyout, but given the long line of midfielders ahead of him in the Camp Nou pecking order, Samper is seriously considering Arsenal’s offer, having grown frustrated playing for Barcelona’s B team.
