Arsenal Snatches Barcelona Youngster

February 23, 2011

Jon Miquel Toral Harper of Barcelona’s youth squad, Cadete A, is picked up by Arsène Wenger and his Arsenal.

Following in the footsteps of Cesc Fàbregas and Fran Mérida, Toral Harper agrees to play for the London side. Born in 1995 he was considered one of the best players of his youth team and he was compared to Seydou Keita, only more offensive.

Several other Premier League teams such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea was reportedly interested in Toral Harper, but in the end it was the experienced Frenchman who lured the youngster to the British Isles, from where his mother comes.

FC Barcelona will receive 350.000 pounds as compensation, according to El Mundo Deportivo.
