London club to go head to head with Catalan giants for Zuniga.
Arsenal are set to battle it out with Barcelona for Napoli star Juan Camilo Zuniga according to talkSPORT.
Arsene Wenger is said to be a long term admirer of the Colombian, who is capable of playing in defence or as a defensive midfield player, but is likely to face stiff competition for his signature from the current leaders of La Liga.
Zuniga has put in some impressive performances this season in Serie A, as well as alerting a host of top European clubs with some distinguished displays in the Champions League.
The player’s agent has sought to fan the flames of rumours regarding a move, telling Italian radio ‘Top level teams in England and Spain are interested in Zuniga. That is to be expected because many teams are interested in him due to his versatility, and because he can play at the back or further up the pitch. He would fit in very well at a big club’.
Arsenal fans are likely to welcome the news after seeing their side slip to defeat against Manchester City at the Emirates last weekend.
The Gunners currently sit in 6th, six points off Tottenham in the Champions League places albeit with a game in hand.
