Arsenal could make a move for Barcelona midfielder Robert Navarro, according to TMW.

The Italian website reports the Gunners have been monitoring the 15 year old’s situation, with the player weighing up whether he wants to leave the Catalan club at the end of the season.

A multitude of scouts have watched Navarro in action for Barca’s academy side, but it seems Arsene Wenger’s side are currently the player’s most likely destination if he chooses to move teams.

The teenager plays as an attacking midfielder, and is technically gifted. He can also play up front, although he is just as good at creating chances for others.

Navarro has yet to sign professional terms with any club as he has yet to turn 16. His birthday is in six days time, and he will then be able to choose who he signs for. Sport report the Spaniard will hold talks with Barcelona before making a decision on his future.

In addition to the Gunners, Manchester City, Monaco and Juventus are also said to keeping tabs on the youngster.
