Arsenal are monitoring the progress of Barcelona youngster Jose Arnaiz. The north London club are reportedly ready to get the player in the coming weeks.
According to Daily Mail, Barcelona have placed a price tag of £20m on him, but Arsene Wenger is only ready to pay £17.7m for the player.
Anaiz 22, joined Barcelona from Real Valladolid in August on a three-year contract for £3.4m. Despite joining Barcelona for such amount, he hasn’t consistently featured for the senior team. He has scored six goals for Barcelona B so far this season.
During the match, Arnaiz who was having his debut for the Spanish giants started the match, and he had a brilliant performance throughout the match. He capped his wonderful debut with a well-taken goal. Arsene Wenger was impressed with the youngster’s showing for Barcelona in a Copa del Rey fixture against Real Murcia and has since been willing to work with him, as per same report.
He might be tempted to join the north London club as a result of his quest for first-team action. The Spanish international winger will bring more competition and quality to the Gunners’ attack.
It is yet to be seen if Barcelona will agree to let go of the player for £17.7m, a price lower than their monetary value for the player.
