Intermediaries are exploring whether a move to Arsenal would be possible for Barcelona winger Ansu Fati, according to The Independent.

It is claimed that the Gunners are yet to confirm to Fati's representatives whether or not interest in a move is reciprocated. The Spanish international, who is valued by CIES Football Observatory at €60 million (£52 million), will be into the 12 months of his contract at the Nou Camp at the end of the current campaign.

The 20-year-old has endured a difficult season with the Catalan giants, finding game time hard to come by. "It's that he has competition," Barcelona boss Xavi said in April regarding Fati's limited minutes.

"Maybe Ferran [Torres], Raphinha are a little better. [Robert] Lewandowski is a guarantee, and then the coach has to decide.

"Ansu has played, he has participated. He has scored decisive goals but there is fierce competition, and it must be fierce to play for Barça."

If Fati was to join the north Londoners, competition would be equally as fierce considering the talent of first-choice wingers Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, who have both enjoyed stellar seasons. Saka has provided 24 goals and assists in the Premier League this term, with Martinelli notching 20 - exceptional tallies when you consider that they are also both 21-years-old.
