According to Spanish source RAC1, claims Arsenal have opened talks over signing Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomez this summer.

Gomes, 24, completed a high-profile move from Valencia to Barca back in 2016 and the midfielder has struggled at the Nou Camp, scoring only three goals in his 78 appearances for the Catalan giants.

While Juventus are understood to be increasingly keen in signing Gomes, it’s understood Arsenal have been contacted over the Portugal international.

Unia Emery is hoping to bring in more new signings, despite already secured the services of Torreira, Leno and Sokratis.

It is understood Barcelona have approached the Gunners after hearing about their potential interest in landing Gomes ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

It’s claimed that the north London club are prepared to pay around €20million (£18m) for Gomes, but Barca are holding out for a higher fee of around £27million ($35.48m) for their star midfielder.

Having paid £31m to sign him for Valencia Barca would like to make most of their money back on the centre-midfielder.
