Arsenal making progress in their bid to sign €20M Barcelona man

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Riqui Puig as they continue to identify talent to rebuild their squad.

The Barcelona youngster is one of the latest players to break through at the Catalan club.

He remains one for the future, but he is struggling to get minutes in their team at the moment.

Ronald Koeman has never exactly been a fan of his and the Dutchman is open to cashing in on him.

Barcelona’s financial crisis means they can only afford to keep players who are a part of the manager’s plan and this has opened the door for Arsenal to seal the transfer of the Spaniard.

Todofichajes reports that the Gunners remain keen to add him to their squad and they are already in talks with Barcelona to achieve that.

The report says Arsenal was very close to signing him in the last January transfer window before the move collapsed.

With just two more years left on his current deal, Barca has placed a €20M valuation on his head.

That fee seems fair enough to Arsenal with the report insisting that the Gunners are making good progress in their bid to land him.

    Buying him will most likely block Charlie Patino’s advancement to the first team.

    Forward thinking AM with quick feet, tricks and a good through ball. But he’s also small and lightweight, doesn’t have great pace overall and won’t score many. Kind of a smaller ESR / Odegaard hybrid. IMO not made for the EPL and not the type of player we need currently.

    ok, but where is he is supposed to play?

  4. gunnerforlife says:

    Allow Charlie Patino to be integrated into the first team and buy Bissouma in January.

  5. Levie Chikomo says:

    If hes not good enough to break into current Barca team, he will not succeed in the EPL.

    It is Laporta and not Koeman who decides which player is up for sale,also according to the Spanish press Koeman is quickly running out of time to turn things around.
