The upcoming winter will see Arsenal improving their attacking department.
It’s claimed by British and German media that Arsenal are linked with shock Ferran Torres move.
The Spain international only joined Barcelona from Manchester City in January 2022 for 55 million euros and his contract runs to June 2027.
The forward has managed six goal contributions across all competitions in the ongoing campaign.
He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain. The Barcelona forward has also represented the Spain at various youth levels before going on to secure 35 senior caps for his country thus far.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new forward and Ferran Torres is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Gunners have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Mikel Arteta is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Arsenal will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The former Manchester City man will add a new dimension to Arsenal’s attack.
According to the report, “Arsenal are exploring the prospect of bringing Barcelona striker Ferran Torres back to England. BILD says Arsenal are interested in signing ex-Manchester City man Torres in January – just 12 months after he departed the Premier League. The Gunners must cope without star striker Jesus for the next three months as a result of a long-term injury, meaning they are left with just Eddie Nketiah in attack as they aim to continue their top flight title charge into the second half of the season. Torres primarily operates as a winger for the La Liga giants but German outlet BILD have reported that the Gunners want to sign the Spanish international, who has previously worked under manager Mikel Arteta when the pair were still at the Etihad Stadium.”
