The forward looks a fine prospect and is also interesting Italian giants Roma, however Arsenal now seem in pole position for the player's signature.
Barcelona will be hoping to hold on to their youngster, however he could now be tempted with a move to north London.
Arsenal's immediate focus will be on their Premier League clash with Cardiff City this weekend, however Sanabria could now switch to the club in January.
Arsenal currently sit top of the Premier League and will be hoping for another this weekend against the Premier League new-boys tomorrow.
