Arsenal Make Ansu Fati Approach
According to reports, Arsenal has contacted Barcelona attacker Ansu Fati. The Spanish striker has lost favor with current manager Xavi and appears destined to leave Catalonia this summer.
According to sources in Spain, the Arsenal have started talking to his agent Jorge Mendes and would be open to having him visit the Emirates Stadium this summer. Fati would be willing to say goodbye to Barcelona.
Tottenham, an adversary of Arsenal in the Premier League and in North London, is rumored to be interested in signing him as well. Xavi also seems to have quelled rumors of a move in the meantime.
Speaking in a press conference, the Spaniard said: “Ansu Fati is part of the Club, in the present and in the future.”
