Arsenal are preparing a sumptuous bid to lure 27-year-old defensive midfielder Sergio Busquets away from Barcelona this summer according to reports.

Even though the deal looks unachievable, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident he can land his target.

One of the obstacles is that Busquets is contracted at Nou Camp until 2019 and has no intention of leaving Barcelona anytime soon but Wenger has reportedly asked club chiefs to go after the Spaniard.

It is believed that Busquets is a priority for Wenger who is worried about injury to Francis Coquelin which would leave him with the ageing Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini in the important midfield position as the north London club look to challenge Chelsea to the title in the coming season.
