Arsenal target to leave Barcelona on loan this summer
Samuel Umtiti is anticipated to leave Barcelona this summer with the Catalan club ready to let the French centre-back sign for another club on loan.
The Gunners have been vigorously connected with a move for Samuel Umtiti this season, with the defender having falled down the pecking order at the Camp Nou behind Clement Lenglet, Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo.
There are reports that Barcelona are anticipated to get another defender this summer, with Manchester City’s Eric Garcia at the head of their list. This would permit Samuel Umtiti to leave Catalonia.
Samuel Umtiti wouldn’t like to leave Barcelona, but the club has settled on its choice, with Italy regarded to be the possible destination for the player.
Arsenal wants a new centre-back and could at present enter the race for Samuel Umtiti signature.
