Manchester United and Arsenal are both interested in signing Barcelona youngster Jose Arnaiz, according to reports.
Arnaiz is regarded as one of Barcelona’s brightest talents coming through and the young man is already attracting interest from a host of top Premier League clubs.
The 22 year old, only made his debut for Barcelona in the Copa del Rey clash against Real Murcia last week but has been a key player for the Barcelona B team.
He scored one of Barcelona’s three goals on his debut, with a well taken strike and this has apparently led to reports of Arsenal being interested in him.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are hot on Arnaiz heels.
However, we aren’t alone in the race to sign the young man with Man Utd and Bayern Munich also believed to be keen on his services.
Mundo Deportivo says Arnaiz’s agent Rene Ramos has already received calls about the availability of the forward.
However, the report says we would have to meet Arnaiz’s €20m to have any chance of signing him.
Arsenal have signed a host of Barcelona’s top prospects in the past, so it isn’t so surprising that we are being linked with Arnaiz.
However, I don’t think we hold any concrete interest in Arnaiz, he may be a talented player but I think this is the Spanish media trying to build a story around a player who just gave a good account of himself on his debut.
