The Cameroonian midfielder, who joined the club from the Gunners back in 2012 for a £15m fee has yet to establish himself as a first team regular at the Nou Camp and is already being linked with a move away.

With both Arsenal and Manchester United keeping an eye on the 26-year-old, he spoke out about his desire to resist a return to the Premier League in order to stay in Catalonia.

“In comparison to my first year, I feel much better,” he said.

“When you move to a new country and have to adapt to a new language, a new culture, it requires time.

“What I have discovered here is that we are like a big family and everyone has welcomed me with open arms.

“Cesc (Fabregas) is like a brother to me. He took me by the hand and guided me through those difficult early moments, and that made me feel better right away.

“Now I understand the language a little more, although I still struggle to express myself. Life’s much better and I am very happy to be here.”

However, he has made just seven appearances for coach Gerardo Martino and has emerged as a target from both English sides as they look to bolster their respective squads, and Martino has claimed that he would be willing to let him go for just £10m.
