Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Barcelona player Ansu Fati. Arsenal signed Leandro Trossard from Brighton this January window. But Mikel Arteta looks to strengthen his attack further by signing the youngster. Arsenal are in touch with Ansu Fati for a possible move to Emirates. Other clubs from Premier League are also interested in signing Fati. Furthermore, the potential buyer have to pay a hefty sum of money for the player. Therefore it is expected that Barcelona could demand up to €100m (around £89m) for the youngster. The price tag is definitely high for the player. But Arsenal should not be deterred by it as they were already prepared to pay big money for Mykhailo Mudryk. However, that deal could go through as Mykhailo Mudryk chose Chelsea over Arsenal. Some outlets revealed that the last Arsenal bid was somewhat similar to Chelsea’s.
Arsenal to try and sign Ansu Fati
Journalist Ben Jacobs have informed that Arsenal have made contact with Ansu Fati for a potential transfer move. However, they are still trying to gauge whether or not Fati is interested in a move. A move to Premier League could do the youngster some good. Jacobs said,
“At the moment, Barcelona think that his development is with them. He’s down the list in terms of the order of players that Barcelona would like to sell to bring in income and ultimately to reduce their wage bill, so it’s going to take quite a large number from a Premier League club.”
He further continued,
“Arsenal have made a little bit of contact on the player’s side to try and see what his desire is and if he’s open to the Premier League.”
Ansu Fati is still very young and will only get better with time.
Joining Arsenal now could be exciting for Ansu Fati. Therefore the player would be a good addition to the team. However, the Gunners have other players on their wish list. West Ham United‘s Declan Rice is said to be their number target for the summer transfer window. It seems like signing the midfielder will be prioritized.
