Arsenal are preparing a bid for Barcelona starlet Gai Assulin, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen on signing the 18-year-old attacking midfielder whose contract is set to expire at the end of the current season.
The Gunners boss is looking to add another wide man to his talented squad and has outlined the Barca star, who can play on either wing, as a top transfer target.
Chelsea tried to sign the the Israli international in 2007 but Assulin rejected the offer choosing to stay and fight for a place in the Barcelona starting line-up.
However, over the next two weeks talks will be held between Assulin’s agent, Pini Zahavi, and Barcelona in an attempt to thrash out a new deal with Arsenal waiting in the wings.
The young winger made his debut in the Israeli national team just 14 days before he turned 17 making him the youngest ever player to feature for his national side.
