Arsenal now holding talks over deal to sign 24-year-old with £27m price

Arsenal are reported to be holding negotiations over a possible deal to secure the signing of another midfielder this summer. 

Unai Emery has kicked off pre-season with the Arsenal squad for the first time since he was announced as the man to replace Arsene Wenger back in May.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss is apparently hoping to bring in more new signings, despite already securing deals to sign the likes of Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno and Sokratis.

Barcelona star Adre Gomes has been picked out as one of the players whom the Gunners are currently pursuing.

And according to French outlet RAC1, Arsenal are locked in negotiations with Barca over a deal to sign the midfielder.

Indeed, the 24-year-old, who is priced at £27million, is claimed to have been persuaded by the idea of playing for Arsenal.

Should Gomez move to north London, he would hand the Gunners more midfield options for the upcoming season.
