According to a reliable WTTGT source, chief Arsenal scout Steve Rowley has sent one of his men to assess Spanish U21 international, Thiago Alcântara.
The Barcelona B star is thought to be one of the names that could leave the Camp Nou this summer and Arsenal are monitoring the situation closely.
Thiago is the son of Brazilian 1994 World Cup winner, Mazinho and plays within the Barcelona B side with his younger brother, Rafinha.
The news may suggest the Spaniard could be used as part of a deal that would take Fabregas to Catalonia.
Thiago, who starred in Spain’s 1-1 draw with England on Sunday evening, is highly rated and would surely be welcomed at the Emirates by the Arsenal faithful.
