Barcelona’s latest prodigy, 15-year-old Joel Lopez, has confirmed that he is leaving the club.

And the youngster looks set to join Arsenal.

Lopez has turned down the offer of a new deal at La Masia to move to the Emirates Stadium.

Spanish newspaper Sport reported last month that Lopez and his family had met with senior officials at the club, who had tried to persuade him to stay amid Premier League interest.

But with more opportunities to progress into the first team more quickly in North London, Lopez has elected to chance his arm at Arsenal.

Lopez, not 16 until March next year, will sign for the Gunners on schoolboy terms before penning a professional deal next year.

He will join the club’s academy, under the watchful eye of the club’s new academy head, Per Mertesacker.
