fanatix tickets – Barclays Premier League tickets are still available for next weekend’s games.
Sunderland vs Arsenal tickets are on sale from £23 for this Saturday’s match at the Stadium of Light.
The Gunners were rebuffed in an approach for Villa last month, with Barcelona publicly insisting the 31-year-old was not for sale.
But it is understood that the former Valencia man is desperate for first-team football and is ready to walk out on Barca this summer to join the North London outfit.
Villa has made just seven starts for Barca this term, with boss Tito Vilanova preferring the likes of Pedro, Alexis Sanchez and Cristian Tello as support for Balon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be an admirer of Villa and the Frenchman was reportedly ready to pay up to £13.8m to land the Spain international last month.
