Arsenal are targeting Barcelona youth squad member Xavi Quintilla, in the hopes of bringing another player of Cesc Fabregas' quality to London, according to the Football Observer.

The 15 year old starlet is currently in contract talks with Barcelona, and Barcelona president Sandro Rosell is reportedly doing everything possible to keep Quintilla from heading to England.


Arsenal’s relationship with Barcelona is considered to be strained after a tug of war spanning years over Spanish international Cesc Fabregas took place.

Rosell was particularly angry at Arsenal's purchase of Fabregas from the Barcelona youth team, telling reporters at the time: “For us, it is very important to maintain a group of boys who grow together, and not allow clubs with money to take them away at the age of 16.

“We told them that it was a little immoral.”

Should Arsenal make their intentions to purchase Quintilla public, Barcelona will not be pleased.
