Barcelona are reportedly set to finalize deal for Arsenal and Manchester United target Kostas Manolas.

Arsenal has been on the radar of the AS Roma defender for some time but eventually, we opted to signing Shkodran Mustai from Valencia while Man United signed Eric Bailly instead during the summer transfer window.

The Greece international stayed put in Rome all through the summer and till now, however, according to recent report from Spanish newspaper, Sport, it claimed the La Liga champions are ready to resurrect their interest in the Greece international.

Barca are in need of new centre-backs in the upcoming transfer window as for backups on Javier Mascherano and Jeremy Mathiew, who are both 32 so they want to add some fresh blood to  their defensive options.

And it has been reported earlier that the Blaugrana are willing to firm up their long-standing interest in the 25-year-old  with a bid – but not until the end of the season.
