Having previously successfully raided the Catalan giants for top starlets Arsene Wenger is ready to make offers for forward Munir El Haddadi and midfielder Sergi Samper, both of whom are reported to have release clauses which can be triggered by a very reasonable bid of €12m (£9.5m).

Of course though the two player’s could see their release clause triggered there is the small matter of convincing the players to leave the La Liga side.

Munir has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent months, first impressing in pre-season action and then scoring on his La Liga debut before being called up to Spain’s Under 21 side for the first time.

Then just a few days later the 19 year old was called up to the senior national side and made his debut against Macedonia in Spain’s opening Euro 2016 qualifier.

Samper, dubbed the ‘Next Fabregas’, is still to make his senior debut for Barcelona but is a player with undoubted potential.

Wenger has brought in Fabregas, Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin from Barcelona in the past and may hope to pull off a similar coup though it would be surprising if either player chose to leave the club at this juncture.
