Arsenal and Bayern Munich are believed to be keeping tabs on young Barcelona second team captain Alex Grimaldo, according to the Daily Mirror.
The left-back is being touted as one of the most exciting defenders to emerge over the last year, but at 20 he feels that he is ready to play first team football on a more regular basis (via Mirror).
Barcelona’s B team were relegated from the Spanish Segunda division last season, meaning the Valencia-born starlet is now having to ply his trade in the third tier of Spanish football (via Mirror).
And this week the club’s Sporting Director Robert Fernandez confirmed that the player is currently unwilling to sign a new deal to stay at the club.
However, The Mirror believes that the 20-year-old would stay at Barcelona should he be guaranteed a passage into first team at the Nou Camp.
If not, then both Bayern and Arsenal will be waiting in the wings to snap him up.
