Jose Arnaiz is fast building a reputation for himself at Barcelona.
The young striker, having been signed for €3.4m from Real Valladolid, scored for Barca B against Real Oviedo on the weekend.
There are already calls for Arnaiz to be promoted to the first team, particularly given Ousmane Dembele's injury setback.
"He is a very important bet of the club. A significant investment, but he is giving an immediate return."
Gerard added: "I see a bright future and his signing seems a success."
