Bayern reportedly see the player as a long-term successor to 34-year-old French veteran Franck Ribery.

Until this week, Arnáiz has been turning out for Barcelona B and has scored four goals in eight games for them so far this season.

He previously scored 12 goals in 41 appearances for Valladolid.
