Arsenal’s focus right now is on one thing and one only: winning the Premier League. Having been eliminated from the Europa League and FA Cup, Mikel Arteta hopes his side can use this as leverage to go on and win the illustrious best league in the world.

However, for the recruitment team, it’s a different story. While they’re probably having a great time watching the club they work for smash it on the field, they’ll have a keen eye on the areas they could improve, with the summer transfer window slowly creeping up.

Many names have been thrown out there for Arsenal in the summer. Most notably, there’s Declan Rice, but there are other options such as Ansu Fati and a back-up right-back, with Kieran Tierney seemingly on his way out over the coming months.

I must emphasise on the importance of Ansu Fati, because his name will make the rounds a lot in the coming few weeks. Recently, the father of Ansu, Bori Fati, exploded to the media about his outrage that his son isn’t getting enough minutes for the LaLiga toppers.

Speaking to COPE, the father said that he is angry because while he understands there is great quality at Barcelona, he sees his son as more than worthy of getting into the first team. Ansu Fati works hard but doesn’t get the game time to reflect his immense motivation, therefore you can understand why his father is so angry about the situation.

Team Talk are under the assumption that is this problem escalates, which it certainly looks like doing, then a move to England could be a real possibility. Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle are all interested.

Where do you think Ansu Fati will be playing next year? Could a move to England be on the cards for the La Masia project?
