Arsenal have been handed a major winter transfer boost in their bid to land star target to finally solve a key position in Arsene Wenger this term.
Premier league clubs are keen on Celta Vigo star Nolito. Scouts from Premier league clubs have frequently be keeping tabs on him.
AS says Arsenal are currently sitting in pole position ahead of Barcelona who are struggling to come up with the money for his transfer.
The report also claims Arsene Wenger is ready to finalise the deal in January thereby ready to meet his release clause of £12.6million.
The Celta Vigo winger had more assist than any other Spanish player in the country’s top flight last season, which was even more impressive considering that he plays for a club that finished mid table last season.
Nolito has previously declared his love for Barcelona, a club that he has played for before. Arsenal were said to be seriously considering the Celta Vigo winger but has set his sight on a return to Camp nou. Barcelona on the other hand are said to be considering Nolito as a replacement for Pedro who moved to West London last summer but the Catalan giants are keeping their options wide.
