Arsenal are on the brink of signing Barcelona teenage striker Tonny Sanabria. The Daily Mail says Sanabria is set to sign a five-year deal with Arsenal after telling the Spanish giants he wants to leave.

His agent Raul Verdu said: "Our contacts with Arsenal are advanced and I expect a solution in the next week."

Arsenal are due to meet with Barcelona and Sanabria next week to finalise a deal and also gain clearance from both federations.

The Gunners are likely to only have to pay compensation of around £300,000 for Sanabria.
