Arsenal ‘rival Barcelona for signing of goalscoring winger, he’d be perfect Alexis Sanchez partner’

Gunners ready to rival Barca for signing of in-form attacker.

Arsenal look ready to join Barcelona in the race to sign Celta Vigo forward Nolito in the January transfer window, according to sources in Spain.

The classy wide-player, who can also play up front, has already found the back of the net five times so far this season, and could be just the signing Arsenal need to ease the pressure on Alexis Sanchez to score their goals.

The Gunners have issues with players like Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, who have not scored consistently enough, and Arsene Wenger looked like bringing in a big name in the summer.

However, deals for the likes of Karim Benzema could not be reached, with now saying Arsenal could try to meet the buy-out clause of £13m needed to sign Nolito.
