Yaya Toure open to Arsenal move
Barca has been linked again with a swoop for Cesc Fabregas in the summer, having long courted the 23-year-old, a product of its youth academy who left the Nou Camp to join the Gunners as a teenager back in 2003.
It is thought that the Primera Division giant, which was dumped out of the Champions League by Inter Milan last month, sees the Spanish international as the missing piece of the puzzle and is ready to offer £25 million plus Toure.
And the Cote d’Ivoire ace’s agent, Dimitri Seluk, has not ruled out the possibility of his client heading to the Emirates Stadium, with Arsene Wenger a keen admirer of the combative midfielder’s talents.
“Yaya is happy at Barcelona and will only leave for a big project at a big club,” Seluk said in The People. “But in England there are sides with great prestige and that could be decisive. Arsene Wenger knows Yaya, and I am convinced he could be a success with Arsenal.”
