Arsenal have one other probability at Eric Garcia switch from Man Metropolis
Arsenal may have some talented defenders at the club right now and they will have a game or two where the future looks bright but some of their recent performances show why signings are needed this summer.
A report from Four Four Two confirmed that Arsenal had attempted to sign Eric Garcia from Man City but decided to turn it down in order to return to Barcelona with a free transfer if his contract expires at the end of the season.
Barca don’t have a lot of money and they need defense upgrades so it made a lot of sense but that lack of finance could give Arsenal a surprising second chance to get this deal

Marca have just reported that Barca have reached an agreement and they want to return to Spain but they can no longer afford to honor that agreement and they have tried to offer him a reduced salary instead.
This has not been well received by the player and there is no sign that he is ready to accept it right now. So there is a real chance for Arsenal to get something done here.
Ultimately, it will depend on how much Garcia wants to return to the nou camp, but it doesn’t have to make him feel respected and it will look worse if Barca then throw money on other big signings in the summer.
Garcia has shown great promise in the Premier League and is perfect for Mikel Arteta’s system when he wants to play from behind. Hence, this could still be a situation for fans to watch out for.
