Arsenal are reported to have completed a deal to bring Barcelona teenagers Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin to the Emirates.

SkySports claim the catalan club have been left 'fuming' just days before their Champions League final, with two members of their 'Cadet' squad making the move to England and following in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas.

Toral, a 16-year-old central midfielder with an English mother, agreed a deal earlier in the year, and the website claims Arsenal have followed that up with the signing of Bellerin.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Aston Villa have all been monitoring the young forward, but the 16-year-old has joined Toral in declining a contract at the Camp Nou in favour of a move to north London.


The report goes on to state that the pair have agreed five year contracts with the Gunners, and comes at a time when Barcelona are using the club's London Colney training ground ahead of the Wembley showpiece on Saturday.

Young Guns blog have further developments on the story, stating Arsenal will pay close to €1 million for the pair in compensation over time. Toral will set Arsene Wenger back €350,000 up-front, while Bellerin is costing the club around €400,000 at the first stage.
