Arsenal legend Perry Groves is desperate for Ross Barkley to join the Gunners.
But the former winger, who spent six years at the club, admits the move is unlikely to go ahead.
Instead, Groves thinks the Everton star, 23, will end up at Chelsea or Tottenham.
Barkley has a year left on his contract but has failed to sign a new deal.
Groves told bwin: “I’d absolutely love him at Arsenal. I’m a massive Ross Barkley fan and think he could be perfect for us.
“He’s got something that other players don’t have. If you can get Barkley for £25million, that’s a no-brainer.
“He could play behind Alexandre Lacazette or alongside Granit Xhaka – I’d love to have him.
“At this stage of his career, the money should not be the driving force. He wants to test himself and needs to do so at a club like Arsenal to earn the right to demand such money.
“I think he’ll end up at Spurs or Chelsea, which would be a real shame as he’s entering the peak stage of his career.
“Too many people look at the negative aspects to Ross’ game rather than what he can do.”
Everton boss Ronald Koeman admitted last week Barkley was on his way out:
“We made a good offer of a contract. He declined.”
Groves thinks Arsenal have had a good transfer window so far – despite only two new faces arriving.
