Breaking: €15m influential Barca midfielder set to sign for Arsenal

Here's the latest from Arsenal Blogs....

As Arsène Wenger bids farewell as Arsenal manager with yet another away defeat last night, the thoughts of many is how and under who and with players the club will perform next season.

The Gunners' performances in this year's Premier League has been woeful, particularly on the road, and it seems clear whoever is coming in to replace the Frenchman has got a lot of rebuilding to do for a prosperous seaosn.

Many have suggested that with no Champions League football for the club next season, this might affect them in bid to secure signing of top talent.

However, this might no be case to all players as some may experienced sudden ship out from club. It's believed that Barcelona are considering signing Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann but, having spent seriously to secure the signing of Ousmane Dembélé and Philippe Coutinho, the club lack the funds to get the signing of Griezmann done.

It's reported that the club may consider selling some of their players in order raise funds for the signing of Griezmann, and long-term Arsenal target €15m-rated André Gomes is among those to be sold.

Gomes has had well-documented off-field issues this season but the Portuguese has managed to maintain highly impressive record regardless:

"Gomes has played in 16 of Barcelona’s 35 La Liga matches this season and it’s notable that, despite the side currently boasting an unbeaten record, their performances have improved markedly with the Portuguese in the side.

An increased average of 0.5 goals per game scored and a decreased average of 0.5 goals per game conceded are impressive starting points, but it’s in Barcelona’s win ratio where Gomes’ contribution really shines. A jump of 25% with Gomes in the side is genuinely impressive and cannot be matched by many of his teammates, including Lionel Messi."

Players capable of making such huge impact to a team like of Barcelona are rare, and there's no doubt that Arsenal need players that can achieve this heights for the club. The signing of the Porgugal international would send a real statement of intent to rivals, and Arsenal should do everything in their power to make this a done deal.
