REVEALED: Arsenal made deadline day bid for Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo

Premier League interest arrived on deadline day for Barcelona pair Martin Braithwaite and Junior Firpo.

Knowing Barca is in need for quick sales, English clubs saw an opportunity on Monday to test their resolve.

Mundo Deportivo says Arsenal made enquiries after Firpo in their search for left-back cover. The Gunners had also expressed interest in Crystal Palace fullback Patrick van Aanholt.

But in the end, the market shut with neither player making the move to London Colney.

Meanwhile, an unnamed Premier League sought to bring former Middlesbrough striker Braithwaite back to England, but the Dane refused to budge.
