Transfer expert responds to Arsenal links with ‘top talent’

Arsenal are interested in signing a young La Liga star.


The player in question is Celta Vigo midfielder Gabri Veiga, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League at the end of the season.

Veiga has a contract with the Spanish club until the summer of 2026 and he is valued at around €30m.

Veiga is a product of Celta Vigo’s academy. He is naturally a no.10 but he can also operate as an 8 and has even played a few games on the right-wing.

The youngster has made 40 appearances for Celta Vigo, with 25 of those outings coming in 2022/23. In said outings, he has scored six goals and provided two assists.

But it does not look as though a summer move will come to pass.

As per Fabrizio Romao: “Some Arsenal fans have asked me about links with Celta Vigo youngster Gabri Veiga.”

“However, I think it’s way too early before linking him with big clubs like this. I’m told four or five top clubs scouts are monitoring him as Veiga is a top talent and he’s doing great in La Liga, but it’s something for the future, not present.”
