Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto is seen as an ‘interesting option’ at Arsenal, according to Fichajes.net.
The 29-year-old can operate in the middle on the pitch or as a right-back. His versatility and ability to play the style of football used by Mikel Arteta at the Emirates makes him an attractive target for the Gunnners.
Roberto has a contract expiring at the end of this season. He came close to committing his long-term future to the Catalan club recently, before the Spaniard’s agent confirmed talks with Barca had stopped.
Recent reports in the Spanish press have indicated the player now has no intention of signing a new deal and will leave the La Liga side as a free agent next summer. After relating these claims, Fichajes.net share their own information about the fullback’s situation.
It’s explained the north London club are one of two sides to have ‘shown interest’ in Roberto in recent months.
While it looks like this will be his last season at Barcelona, the outlet points out the versatile star’s future ‘seems to be in the Premier League’, where Arsenal see Roberto as an ‘interesting option’.
