Arsenal told to pay £54m for World class centre-back

Barcelona will reportedly demand a fee of around £54m for centre-back Samuel Umtiti if they are to sell the Frenchman this summer transfer window.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both been touted with an interest in the star, and although Blaugrana are said to be prepared to sell, Umtiti won’t come cheap.

The Catalan heavyweights are keen to seal a return for Neymar this summer and are trying to raise funds through player sales, and the Daily Mirror report that they have now named their price for Umtiti.

The 25-year-old player has been at Barcelona since summer of 2016 but has never really been a supporters’ favourite, instead hovering on the edge of the main team.

Indeed, last campaign he made just 14 appearances across all competitions and would be interested in leaving to secure himself more first-team minutes.
