Reports - Arsenal eyeing move to bring Barcelona star back to Premier League

Arsenal are said to be keeping a close eye on Barcelona defender Eric Garcia, according to Caught Offside. The young Spanish defender has put in impressive performances at the Catalan club despite getting few opportunities under manager Xavi Hernandez.

Garcia began his career at Barcelona’s youth academy before moving to Manchester City in 2017. However, he failed to establish himself in the first team at the Etihad Stadium despite playing 35 games for City before moving back to Barcelona in 2021.

Despite not having the best time at Manchester City, Garcia has now gained more experience and could be ready for a return to the Premier League. This is where Arsenal come in, as the Gunners are reportedly looking to bring the defender back to England.

The Spanish defender has shown considerable improvements, featuring 14 times for the Blaugrana this season, registering a goal in the process. Garcia is a strong, quick, and skillful defender who is comfortable on the ball and can play with both feet. He is also an excellent ball passer and can contribute to build-up play.

His versatility also makes him an attractive option for clubs. He can play as a central defender, as a right-back, and even as a defensive midfielder. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is interested in the young Spanish defender after working with him at Manchester City.

While there is no confirmation yet that a move will happen, the report indicates that Arsenal have shown a genuine interest in Garcia. With the right offer, they should be able to land the young defender.
