Arsenal are convinced they're close to winning the race for Barcelona superkid Tonny Sanabria.

The Daily Mail says the Gunners believe they are in pole position to land the 17-year-old after being informed that he is prepared to move to London, though he wants assurances over his first team chances before committing to Arsenal.

It has been reported that the Gunners are ready to sign the forward in January and are ready to meet his £2.5m release clause in a deal that could go up to £4.5m.
