Arsenal have signed Barcelona starlets Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin to five-year deals.

The Catalonia club are said to be unhappy about losing more products of their famous La Masia youth academy to the North London club.

Barcelona offered deals to both players but they were turned down as the footballers beleieve their futures are best served in England and under manager Arsene Wenger.

Both players are 16-years-old and have followed a number of Nou Camp youth academy products to the Emirates.

In recent years, the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Fran Merida and Ignasi Miquel have all left Catalunya for Colney.

Arsenal agreed a deal for midfielder Toral earlier in the season and followed that up with a swoop for striker Bellerin, who had offers from Manchester United and Chelsea.

Both Toral and Bellerin have signed five-year deals with Arsenal and Arsene Wenger is sure to be delighted to have landed two of Spain’s brightest young prospects.

The deals were completed ironically as Barca’s senior squad trained at Arsenal ahead of their UEFA Champions League final clash with Manchester United this Saturday.
