Barcelona are to join the race to sign Arsenal target Juan Camilo Zuniga, according to talkSPORT.

Sources in Italy have suggested that the Catalans have met the player's representatives and are trying to persuade him to come to the Nou Camp.

The 27-year-old, whose contract runs out at Napoli next summer has also been monitored by Italian giants Juventus as well as the Gunners, did look set to sign a new deal at Rafa Benitez's side but now seems to be interested in a move to Spain.

However, Arsene Wenger's side may opt for a move for the Colombian defender in the January transfer window, but will face a challenge gaining his signature.

The star, who can also play in midfield, would offer a great versatile option to Wenger's side should he come to the Emirates. 

Arsenal and Barcelona both kicked off their Champions League campaigns with victories this past week, while Napoli also gained all three points with a victory over last year's runners up Borussia Dortmund.
