Arsenal target Samper to hold Barcelona discussions

Barcelona's Sergi Samper will hold talks with the Catalan club about his future following interest from Arsenal.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Samper's agent Pere Guardiola will discuss his client's future with Barcelona's sporting director Robert Fernandez in the coming days.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reportedly sees Samper as a suitable long-term replacement for Mikel Arteta.

It is understood that Arsenal are prepared to meet the £8.4million release clause in Samper's contract, although it is believed the 20-year-old's preference is to sign a new deal with the La Liga club.
