Arsene WengerArsenal are set to raid Barcelona once again this summer, this time for Julio Pleguezuelo Selva.

According to The Daily Mirror, Arsene Wenger wants to sign the 16-year-old who can play in the centre-back or right-back role.

Selva has impressed in the Barca youth side and Arsenal could sign the youngster for a minimal fee.

However, Barcelona believe they have the young defender tied down, but this has never stopped Wenger from poaching their young stars.

In 2011, Wenger managed to sign both Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral from the Barcelona academy and started it all of when he acquired Cesc Fabregas when he was 16 almost a decade ago.

Expect there to be a battle for Selva’s signature over the next few weeks, and I think, if history is to go anything by, Arsenal will come out on top. Maybe the use of both Bellerin and Toral will see The Gunners nab Selva away from Barca.
