Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have been linked with Barcelona forward Ansu Fati.
According to Football Transfers, Arsenal want to sign Ansu Fati from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
The report has claimed that Arsenal are pushing to get a deal done for Fati.
Barcelona are open to sending the young forward out on loan, but only if Arsenal are prepared to cover his wages of £199,000 per week (SalarySport).
The La Liga champions want £50 million for a permanent exit of Fati.
Football Transfers has added that “Ansu will insist to remain with Barcelona but that a meeting will take place between Barca president Joan Laporta and the player’s agent Jorge Mendes on Friday during which they will try to persuade the youngster that he should depart for the good of his career”.
Ansu Fati should consider leaving Barcelona for Arsenal
In our view, Barcelona forward Ansu Fati should seriously consider a move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
Based on the report in Football Transfers, it seems that Barcelona want to get rid of Fati and Arsenal are determined to sign him.
There is no point in the Spain international forward staying at Barcelona if he is not wanted at Camp Nou.
It will be interesting to see what Fati does after today’s big meeting.
Arsenal are a big club who are aiming to win the Premier League title this season.
Under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, Fati could flourish.
Just look at how Arteta has worked wonders with the likes of playmaker Martin Odegaard and defender William Saliba and has improved them.
Fati could develop under the Spaniard.
The 20-year-old has made two substitute appearances in La Liga this season.
