Reports are out claiming that Arsenal are not giving up on winning the race for Barcelona teenage striker Toni Sanabria.
The 17 year-old Paraguay international has decided to leave Barca in January, but despite Arsenal’s interest, AS Roma are now regarded as favourites for his signature.
Sport claims that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is making a personal intervention, convincing the board to raise their contract offer to Sanabria’s family and also reopening talks with his agent, Raul Verdu.
Gunners chief Richard Law is on standby to fly to Barcelona to help kick along negotiations if needed.
Wenger refuses to accept defeat in their battle for Sanabria, who along with Roma, also has a big offer on the table from PSG.
