Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign a 15-year-old wonderkid from FC Barcelona (via The Mirror).
There’s certainly a history of it happening and it seems that Arsenal could soon yet another young star from FC Barcelona.
Cesc Fabregas and Hector Bellerin are just two of the several players to move from the Spanish side to London as young players and then establish themselves in the Arsenal first team.
Well, now it seems that the Gunners are keen on another young player from the academy of the soon-to-be Spanish champions.
Robert Navarro is the player in question with a host of European clubs joining the Gunners in pursuit of the attacking midfielder.
Manchester City were once considered favourites but now, the Gunners have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of the player.

Navarro turns 16 on 12 April and is free to join another club from then. Should he choose to do so then he would follow a long line of players to leave FC Barcelona and establish successful careers elsewhere in recent years. If he turns out as talented as some of the other players to come from La Masia in the last few decades then the Gunners should definitely explore his signing.
