Fabrizio Romano Drops Update on Reported Arsenal Pursuit of La Liga Star as Internal Talks to Hold in May

Football transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has addressed the latest Arsenal transfer speculation, particularly regarding their potential interest in promising young Barcelona defender Mikayil Faye.

The Senegal international has recently been making waves in the news, with Manchester United reportedly expressing strong interest in acquiring him, according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, as cited and translated by Sport Witness.

Adding to the speculation, Arsenal have emerged as a potential destination for the player.

Romano admits the possibility of Barcelona needing to make a decision regarding Faye’s future at the club, hinting at internal discussions that may hold before the summer.

In an exclusive interview with CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, Romano sheds light on the situation. He downplays the specific links with Arsenal while emphasising that there are currently no ongoing discussions with other clubs.

“There have been reports linking Mikayil Faye with Arsenal, but I’m not aware of negotiations or talks with Arsenal at this stage,” Romano said.

“Several clubs are monitoring him, he’s a potential big talent but first of all it’s Barcelona who have to decide what they want to do with Faye; keep him with first team, sell for big money.”

He added: “Internal talks will follow in May, no negotiations are taking place with other clubs now.”

Arsenal supporters are undoubtedly monitoring this situation closely, as the La Liga star emerges as a promising player with significant potential.

Should he become available, Faye could potentially find himself a suitable addition to the Emirates Stadium roster.

While Arsenal currently boast a wealth of defensive talent, with standout performances from the likes of William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Ben White, and Jakub Kiwior, the pursuit of further depth remains a constant consideration.

Faye, with his promising attributes, could indeed represent a prudent long-term investment for the prestigious north London club.
