There is no voice louder in European football now than the sound of the upcoming winter transfers. All the clubs want to contract with the best available elements to strengthen the ranks of the teams in the decisive half of the season, where the championships and leagues are decided and the conflict is at its most intense.
Therefore, all teams want to take advantage of the winter Mercato to complete the team’s shortcomings, and on top of these. The teams are the big teams that compete on multiple fronts, like Barcelona. Despite the stormy crisis the club is going through, the team wants to strengthen its members as much as possible in order to regain its European glories and local dominance that the Blaugrana fans became accustomed to in the last years of the past era.
But the winds come with what Barcelona is not interested, as Arsenal is close to signing Barcelona’s first target of the winter, the Royal Antwerp player, as Spanish press reports confirmed that the player, “Arthur Vermeeren”, the player for the Belgian Royal Antwerp team, is close to Arsenal.
The Catalan newspaper Sport added that Barcelona’s goal is very close to the Arsenal team, and the newspaper explained that negotiations are still ongoing between the two parties with the player.
But the player has a better chance of participating with Arsenal than Barcelona, but Xavi will work in the coming days to convince the player to join Barcelona and convince him to allow him more time to play in Barcelona.
The Belgian player participated with the Royal team in the Champions League this season with his team against Barcelona and did not appear at the required level, but because of the pressures that were on him due to his knowledge that Barcelona was monitoring him.
Barcelona wants to settle the player’s deal in the winter due to the number of unnatural injuries the team has suffered, and Arsenal does not want to wait for the summer because it needs the player’s services.
