Arsenal are interested in Barcelona’s youngster Jose Anaiz who is rated €20m by the Blaugranas.
The 22-year-old could move to any interested club despite having a contract with the Spanish giants till 2021 as a result of the ‘release clause’ in his contract agreement with the Catalans.
Arnaiz has been an important player for Barcelona team B since he signed for the youth team from Real Valladolid in 2017. He has featured in three Copa del Rey matches played by the first-team. He was in action for the senior team in yesterday’s Copa del Rey round-of-16 first-leg fixture against Celta Vigo where he put up a record-breaking performance.
During the match, the Spanish international youngster scored three goals from his first three shots on target — a feat that no Barcelona player has ever achieved in the club’s history. With yesterday’s performance, his monetary value could rise in the transfer market.
According to Marca, Arsene Wenger are set to activate the release clause on his contract, thereby trying to lure him to the Premier League before the end of the month.
Apart from the Premier League clubs, Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich are also tracking the player’s development and they are ready to get him because they believe he’s a perfect replacement for aging Frank Ribery, having similar skills as the Frenchman with his blistering pace, mobility, and diversity in his style of play.
