Premier League giants Arsenal are considering a £8.5million January swoop for Barcelona youngster Sergi Samper, according to reports from Shoot.
Arsenal certainly find themselves in the Premier League title race this season and in order to boost their chances of claiming the crown, it is widely expected that the Gunners will look to make a couple of big name signings during the January transfer window.
However, this does not mean that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has turned a blind eye on building for the future and the well known advocate of promoting young talent has now been touted to make a swoop for Barcelona wonderkid Sergi Samper.
Samper is considered as one of the most talented young players present in the Barcelona academy but the 20-year old has not been able to hold down a regular spot in the first team due to the presence of a plethora of stars.
As a result, it is believed that Samper will be looking to leave Barcelona in search of regular first team football in January and reports from Shoot have claimed that Arsenal are planning a £8.5million swoop for the talented midfielder.
