Report making the round claims Arsenal have stepped up their interest in highly-rated midfielder Robert Navarro, moving ahead of Manchester City in the race to sign the Barcelona youth star, according to the Daily Mail.

Navarro had been courted by City but Pep Guardiola’s side have reportedly cooled their interest, placing Arsenal in pole position to land the youngster if he chooses to leave Barcelona.

Barca have offered Navarro, 15, fresh terms but his preference is said to be for a move abroad to continue his development.

And as he turns 16 this week, he is free to move to a new club.
