Arsenal target would love a free transfer to the Premier League

Sergi Roberto would love to play in the Premier League as he approaches the end of his spell at Barcelona.

The full-back’s current deal expires at the end of this campaign and he is yet to sign an extension.

He has been a major part of their success in the last decade, and it seems the Catalans are now prepared to allow him to leave them for free.

Arsenal has long been linked with a move for him and Mikel Arteta is reportedly an admirer of his services.

The Spanish boss would love to add him to his squad and will be happy with the latest report about his future.

Mundo Deportivo via The Sun claims he is approaching a time that he might move away from Barca.

If that becomes the case, his next possible destination will likely be the Premier League.

It claims he wants to try the competition before he hangs up his boots and that has placed Arsenal in an advantageous position.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Roberto has done very well as a Barcelona player in the last few seasons.

However, the Spanish side will be eager to keep him if they think he still has something to offer them.

Xavi Hernandez is probably dissatisfied with his output so far. If he cannot do well at Barca, why should Arsenal sign him?

We are looking to become a great club again and shouldn’t be targeting flops.

  1. No thanks, if he’s failing to impress why bring him in? Hopefully the safe space large wages days are over for Arsenal.

    Why the clear out if they restock with the same type?

    We dodged a bad Arthur deal, let’s Dodge this bad decision as well.

  2. I dont think he is as bad as made out to be. He has got great experience playing for one of the best teams in Europe and is good both offensively and defensively. His experience and composure on the ball would be an asset to Arsenal. I would like to see him at arsenal. Its not that we should have only youngsters, some seniors are also required to guide and stabilise the team. There should always be a balance, as is the case with great teams.

  3. Well, pros and cons of this guy:


    – very experienced
    – very versatile (midfield, fullback)
    – free transfer fee
    – winner mentality


    – might command high wages
    – might command high signing fee
    – might command a long contract
    – suffering from a 5 month hamstring injury
    – hasn’t really played much in the past 18 months
    – adapting to new league at 30-years old?

    I would say pass on this guy. There are other free agents who are more interesting than this guy. Namely Kessie, Mazraoui, Dybala, Kamara, Grillitsch, Kolo Muani, Suarez etc.

  4. Doubt he would come to Arsenal and sit on the bench. Don’t think he would beat out Tomi, and why pay high wages to a bench player.

    Pass on this one, juice not worth the squeeze.
