In the summer transfer window, Arsenal were searching for a creative midfielder. The Gunners were unable to finalize the signing of Houssem Aouar after signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
Nevertheless, this month they are still involved in improving the squad and Barcelona youngster Riqui Puig is on their list, according to Fichajes.
Puig, with manager Ronald Koeman, has fallen out of favor. In all the competitions this season, he played just 125 minutes.
Although Barca sees him as one for the future, it is clear that to continue improving, the 21-year-old needs minutes on the pitch. Lionel Messi, who labelled him as the next Andres Iniesta, also recognized the potential of the player.
