Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal join battle to sign 21 years old spanish & Barcelona midfielder




Barcelona is ready to let go of Riqui Puig and make him available for transfer this summer.

Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly among the teams that are keen on signing U21 Spain international, who is also being monitored by Juventus and Inter Milan.

Riqui arrived at the Catalan club in 2013, by joining their famed La Masia academy before subsequently making swift progress within the youth setup. Puig broke into the first-team squad in 2018 but has since only made few appearances for them.

His play time has further fallen down this term under the current manager, who has hardly used the 21-year-old attacker. The advent of Ilaix Moriba has further relegated him down the pecking order, meaning the Spanish playmaker has managed to amass only 477 minutes of action so far in the ongoing season.

However, top teams in both England and France still think the 21 years old can deliever if given the chance. The Gunners will be in need of strengthening their midfield in the summer transfer window, considering Ceballos is ready to return to Madrid at the end of his loan spell.

In addition, Joe Willock is being tipped to join Newcastle United permanently, with the Gunners slapping a £20m price tag on him. With Mohamed Elneny only a squad option and Martin Odegaard also facing an uncertain future at the London club due to reasons similar to Dani Ceballos, it is imperative to sign a midfielder.

To that end, Gunners have been linked with a move for Julian Brandt, with Riqui emerging as a viable target as well. However, they are facing stiff competition from the Spurs in his pursuit.
