And Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta will sit down for talks with the teenage striker in an attempt to talk him out of joining Arsenal.
The report claims Roma and Arsenal have both offered the player first-team football should he move in the January transfer window, something much harder to come by at the Nou Camp.
Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo recently reported that the La Liga giants had been informed by Sanabria's representatives that the Paraguayan international would not extend his Barca extent past its current summer 2015 expiry.
The forward is yet to feature for Barcelona's first-team, but has already gained three caps for his country.
He was promoted to the Barcelona B team over the summer, and has one goal in six appearances for them so far this season.
Arsenal have history when it comes to poaching top talent for La Masia, the Gunners bought Cesc Fabregas and Fran Merida as teenagers from Barcelona.
