Arsenal determined to sign Barcelona defender, here is the deal

According to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are ready to  sign Barcelona defender during the summer transfer window.

Eric Garcia, 22-year-old moved to Camp Nou from Manchester City but has failed to establish himself in the team.

The defender is reported to be ready for a move away from camp Nou considering his lack of play time. Barca interest in Inigo Martinez on a free transfer is one of the reasons for his decision.

Mikel Arteta could lure Garcia to Arsenal, the Gunners made an unsuccessful move for the centre-back in January. Arsenal could make another attempt in the summer.

Garcia is currently valued at €12 million by Transfermarkt, but the Catalans could demand more to let go of the defender. The move could cost the Gunners €25-30m, with Arteta readiness to bolster his defence further.

Garcia is a quality defender with 92 per cent pass accuracy, and and average of more than one tackle and two clearances per appearance.
