Barcelona starlet's father wants his son to make Arsenal move


Sergi Samper’s father has reportedly contacted Arsenal and urged them to sign his son from Barcelona, Metro has revealed.

Reports claim that boss Arsene Wenger wants the 20-year-old to take over from Mikel Arteta in the Arsenal midfield.

Enjoying regular first-team football at Barcelona this season will not be easy for the talented midfielder but the Spanish giants would prefer to loan him out for a season or two rather than losing him on a permanent basis.

The player's agent will meet with Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez at the start of the week to discuss the future of his client.

The youngster has an £8.4m release clause that Arsenal are reportedly ready to meet.
