Arsenal plot January move for Barcelona star

Arsenal are looking to improve their attack in the winter transfer window.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal, AC Milan and Tottenham are in a battle to sign Ferran Torres this winter. The report claims that Barcelona are happy to let him leave in the upcoming transfer window.

Torres joined Barcelona from Premier League club Manchester City in December of last year.

He has since struggled in Spain somewhat, netting just two goals in 13 league appearances so far in 2022/23.

But before he was snapped up by La Blaugrana, he was impressing with Manchester City. He scored two and assisted one in the opening for games of the Premier League season before suffering an injury.

And with Gabriel Jesus recently undergoing surgery after suffering an injury at the World Cup, Arsenal may be looking to bring in new recruits during the January transfer window.

Torres is capable of playing as a winger but has also featured in a false nine role at times, which could mean he is being targeted to cover for Jesus, as well as Bukayo Saka.

Mikel Arteta spent some time at Manchester City, so he may look to use his contacts from his former club to get the lowdown on whether Torres would be a good fit for his current side.

No transfer fee is mentioned in the report, but given Barcelona are already willing to part ways, it is hard to see them demanding too much.
