Arsenal battle Liverpool for Barcelona wonderkid (Watch youngster in action)

Arsenal have enquired about the availability of Barcelona prospect Mikayil Faye, reports the Daily Mail.

The versatile defender was expected to be integrated into the first team next season under Xavi, but Barca’s decision to sack the Spaniard has prompted Faye’s suitors to attempt to pounce on the situation.

Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen are all said to be interested in the 19-year-old, with Arsenal now joining the teenager’s growing list of admirers.

A fee in the region of £17million is expected to test the resolve of Barca, though it remains to be seen whether Hansi Flick has long-term plans involving Faye.
