Ansu Fati Arsenal Liverpool Man Utd transfer exclusive

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are all interested in Ansu Fati and have made some contact with the Barcelona forward, though not with his club yet.

According to Ben Jacobs in his weekly exclusive CaughtOffside column, the Spain international could be one to watch this summer, though it would likely take a huge offer in the region of €100million to prise him away from Barcelona.

Fati has long looked a terrific prospect at the Nou Camp, and it seems Barca are not too keen on the idea of letting him go.

Clubs have not yet approached Barcelona over Fati, but it seems Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd have made some early inroads via the player’s side of things.

Discussing the latest on Fati’s future, Jacobs said: “Barcelona boss Xavi has come out and said that Ansu Fati is not for sale, but sometimes financial needs must. Any outgoings this summer will be against the backdrop of Barcelona’s need to cut their wage bill by €150-200m or bring in significant income. Fati is by no means one the highest earners at the club, but he’s still on an excellent wage and a young and talented forward who will command a healthy fee.

Ansu Fati celebrates a goal for Barcelona

“Clubs from the Premier League have made contact on the player’s side, which is also why Barcelona are distancing themselves from the speculation because they are not the ones involved in any talks yet.

“It’s very plausible that Fati could cost somewhere in the region of €100m, which would be a club-record for many of the suitors interested and a big price compared to his form right now.

“A series of knee injuries seem to have affected his overall development. But Fati has still got all of the attributes to add goals, dynamism, creativity and versatility to either Barcelona or whatever club he moves on to next.

“For now, the player simply craves consistent game time. Last season he scored four goals in ten LaLiga games. This campaign he’s played 20 matches but only added three goals and hasn’t had as many minutes as he would have liked. Plus there’s massive pressure wearing the No.10 shirt at Barcelona and Fati hasn’t been as clinical or explosive as many predicted.
