Arsenal is preparing to meet the release clause of Barcelona B top scorer Jose Arnaiz According to Marca.
Although “rated highly” by Valverde, the senior team manager but he has only been good enough to feature in the Copa del rey competion.
Barcelona paid 3.4m Euros for Arnaiz from Valladolid but limited chances in the senior team meant he could be tempted away, and Marca is reporting that Arsenal may actually bid in January rather than wait till the summer.
Is Arsenal looking to add bodies to the squad or looking to address a specific problem with the proposed purchase of Jose Arnaiz? He is only good enough for the B team of Barcelona and yet Wenger is ready to pay his release clause of 20m Euro?
Is Arsenal paying 20m Euro for a potential or someone actually ready to go straight in to the team?
Alexis Sanchez impending departure need to be address as a matter of urgency, the club is probably working hard for a replacement, and in fact many names have been linked including Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and Lyon’s Nabir Fekir but there is a chance the club may be settling for cheaper alternative rather than go all out to spend on a player that can boost the side and fill the void that would be left by Sanchez.
