Barcelona are ready to tempt Arsenal into parting with Robin van Persie by offering a host of their best youngsters. El Mundo Deportivo says Isaac Cuenca, Cristian Tello and Jonathan dos Santos are all interesting Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Only this week, Barca sports chief Andoni Zubizarreta was forced to deny claims he had flown to London to meet with Van Persie's agent.
