Barcelona starlet set to sign new deal

The 20-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal.

“We are getting closer and closer to an agreement, but there will have to be more meetings before anything is signed,” said his agent Josep Maria Orobitg.

“It’s just a question of sorting out the finer details because Barca love the player and the player wants to remain at Barca, so there should be no problems.”
