Arsenal on the brink of triggering release clause for talented La Liga midfielder

Wenger.jpgSome Gunners supporters sat by the bar, sharing a packet of peanuts with their pints have been getting a bit rowdy over the past few hours, and that has come off the back of exciting reports Sergi Samper is on his way to the Emirates.

The Daily Express are saying that Arsene Wenger is ready to offer up the £8.4 million needed to activate the release clause of the young Spanish defensive midfielder.

The Spain under-21 international, who has been a regular in the Barcelona B side over the past few seasons is seen by many Arsenal fans as the perfect long-term replacement for current club captain Mikel Arteta.

At just 20, it is hard to imagine Samper turning down an offer from a side who like Barcelona can guarantee Champions League football, but are also much more likely to give him the first team football he will be craving.

What do the Arsenal faithful think? Would you raise your pint to this signing? Is this the position you need strengthening? Let us know in the comments!
