Barcelona’s 31 year old striker David Villa wants a January transfer to Arsenal, reports The Daily Mail.

It had been widely cited that Arsenal want to sign the Spanish goal machine but there had been some doubt as to the Spaniard’s desire for a potential move to north London.

However, it would appear that this doubts have disappeared as sources close to the deal not only claim that David Villa is keen on a move to the Gunners, but that he will make a personal request to the Barcelona hierarchy to facilitate and accelerate a potential move to England.

David Villa has been prolific for the Catalan side, bagging 28 goals in 59 appearances, and as a result many clubs are interested in his signature. Barcelona are refusing any offers to take the forward on loan as they say they want a permanent conclusion to the player’s time at the club.

However, the price they desire could present a stumbling block; Barca reportedly want £16 million, and whilst David Villa is undoubtedly classy, that is a large sum for a player who is entering the twilight of his career.

It is thought that Wenger will look to fund a move by selling some of his squad’s dead wood.

    Why are we being linked with a 31y old that was good before he broke his leg? This is a really bad trade – we need a a top class striker. This is a terrible trade.

    That is great news to see such a class player in our team colours. Maybe it is the influence of song & fabrigas that villa will lift his game again. Im looking forward to a dream striker partenship with our srtinking pair

    I’ll remain a gooner 4eva. I think Villa is a perfect replacement for RVP. £16million is not too big for him. At least Man U paid 24 for RVP. Pls Wenger, make this happen.
