ARSENAL AND FERRAN TORRES TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Barcelona forward Ferran Torres is aware of the interest of Arsenal in the January transfer window. The report also claims that they have made him a priority signing after missing out on Mykhaylo Mudryk. It also claims that the Gunners sporting director is already having initial discussions with Barcelona. However, there is no bid made or nothing is advanced. Hence, it is clear that Ferran Torres is one of the players on the list for Mikel Arteta and the team.
However, Arsenal are also aware that the price to sign him is very high. This is because the La Liga giants have spent 55 million in the last January transfer window to sign him from January. Hence, it is clear that Barcelona will hope to recover their transfer fee paid to Manchester City. Therefore, it is sure that the Gunners are going to get inflated prices in the January transfer window. It is also because all the clubs now recognize the dangerous rising ability of the team in the coming years.
THE SPANISH FORWARD WANTS TO CONTINUE HIS STAY WITH BARCELONA
According to Athletic, Ferran Torres is one of the names on the shortlist for Arsenal. However, top officials of the Premier League club know that the player wants to stay with Barcelona. Ferran Torres wants to prove himself to manager Xavi. There is also a belief around the La Liga club that he will stay with them till the end of the season. It is because Memphis Depay is going to leave Barca and join Atletico Madrid on a two-year deal. Hence, Barca cannot risk losing another attacker.
This is because they are also under financial fair play problems. Hence, they must prove first that they are following FFP before signing a player in the January transfer window. Hence, Arsenal must make an offer that Barcelona cannot reject. They also need to make an offer that helps La Liga sign a forward and sell Ferran Torres to them. However, personal terms should not be a concern. This is because he is on 62,000 pounds per week in Barcelona. However, with Gunners, he can easily earn 90,000 pounds per week at least.
Arsenal will hope to sign him because he can play in all three forward positions. Hence, Ferran Torres has all the qualities to become a very important player for the Mikel Arteta project in the present and future. He has already shown his qualities in Premier League with Manchester City. However, it is certain the Spanish forward has unfinished business he can finish with the Gunners in the Premier League.
