Arsenal keen to sign Barcelona player after scouting for two years


Catalan media have always expressed their frustration (even criticised) when any Premier League club targets any player from their prestigious La Masia academy. Over the years we have seen several examples of that. Recently, when Chelsea signed Josi Quintero, the young Barcelona winger, graduated from La Masia academy, Catalan press Sport/Mundo Deportivo criticised it heavily. 


Arsenal could face a similar type of situation, as the Gunners are attempting to sign young Barcelona goal keeper Andrei Onana. The Gunners have been keeping a close tab on him for couple of years now, with scout Francis Cagigal thought to be highly impressed with the youngster. Mundo Deportivo now claim Arsenal are showing their desire in signing the youngster this summer.

Barcelona are keen to a new contract renewal offer to Onana, who has a contract till 30th June 2015. Having already signed Ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo, the youngster may struggle to force his way into the senior side in near future. However, he is seen as one of the brightest prospects and therefore the Catalan club are looking to protect him from the lures of other top European clubs.

  1. Bonaroca;- I think it is about time that Mr Wenger will do away with his obsession of signing what sports correspondents refer, the most talented players on the market, but at the end of the day very few from the academy achieved the Wenger Grade and end up on the transfer market.

    While it is good sign have players promoted from the academy, that saves Arsenal from transfer fees,but if we have to focuse on the period that Arsenal have not won a trophy apart from this year, it means that the academy has not as much a success because only few have been given the chance to make the grade.

    With ths system that Arsenal are now on the transfer means that there is something wrong with the academy system

    I have followed Arsenal since 1946 when they were passing through a very bad period not mention relegation.

    I have mentioned in previous notes I have made before hand, I consider that a player can’t play more then 30/35 competitive matches in a seasons, otherwise we shall be back to square one.

  2. We should take him. Barcelona has taken a lot of our players, Overmars, Hleb, Henry, Cesc etc etc.
    On the other hand we’ve got Macey and another young goal keeper which I don’t remember his name, Martinez or something like that
