ARSENAL TRANSFER NEWS: Another £50m Signing From Barcelona?

Well, it seems like Wenger is intent on making the Nou Camp Chiefs as annoyed as possible, as he is interested in another Barcelona academy player, Xavi Quintilla.

Quintilla is one year younger than when Fabregas moved to London several summers ago. Fabregas is now valued at around £50 million pounds and is the Arsenal captain. Wenger is unhappy at Barcelona’s transfer tactics and seems intent to anger Barcelona as much as possible.

It will definitely be interesting to watch how Pep Guardiola and Sandro Rossell will react to news that their prospect could potentially leave their club for free, given the fact that they have already seen another academy player, rising star Jon Miquel Toral Harper, agree to join Arsenal earlier in the season.

Quintilla can play both in defence and in midfield, and scouts from the London side have watched the player in action on more than one occasion. The versatile player cannot sign a professional contract with Barcelona just yet, and Arsenal are reportedly ready to pounce before his current club can offer professional terms.

Transfer rulings in Spain rule that a player under the age of 17 years old are not allowed to sign professional contracts with their club, meaning that other clubs are free to take them away without getting into trouble with the authorities.
