Barcelona have signed many Arsenal players in the past. The list includes Petit, Hleb, Henry and Fabregas. Arsenal on the other hand have signed few Barcelona starlets too. Fabregas, Merida and Ignasi Miquel are all from La Masia academy.
Now the latest rumors from Spain reveal that Arsenal are interested in luring yet another Barcelona teenage star – Antonio Sanabria away from the Catalan club. The 17-year-old forward, known as Tonny, is considered as one of the rising stars in Spain and he had proved his reputation with some good displays in Under-20 World Cup.
What pundits say about him?
Mundo Deportivo’s Francesc Aguilar said,
“Toni Sanabria is on the path to becoming the best ‘Plan B’ for Tata Martino, who has already heard a lot about him. The striker is promising”.
Barca TV journalist Jaume Marcet commented on the player,
“Toni Sanabria has become a fantastic number nine. Sharp in his finishing, physically powerful, with quality, and generous”.
Even though the Spanish giants are keen on keeping the wonder kid with them, Arsenal are confident that they can win the race to sign Antonio Sanabria. Other London club, Chelsea are also interested in the player’s signature.
