Arsenal Make Demand to Barcelona Before Considering Samuel Umtiti Transfer

?Arsenal are one of several sides who have been linked with Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti, but they have asked Barcelona for an extensive medical report on his knee before making any decision.

Since 2018, Umtiti has missed 34 games because of a recurring knee injury.

Every month, Umtiti has needed to have fluid drained from his knee to stop it swelling, so something is clearly wrong, and Barcelona believe that could stop them from earning a significant fee if they do find a buyer.

Even if the medical report came back fine, Umtiti does not want to leave Camp Nou, so it is suggested that he would do all he could to reject any interest and remain in Spain.

Eintracht Frankfurt's Evan N'Dicka and RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano have been linked with switches to the Emirates Stadium, so Mikel Arteta still has plenty of options if he decides that a move for Umtiti is a no-go.

As noted by ?AS, ?Barcelona are desperate to raise money this summer, and they believe that selling Umtiti would go a long way to financing a summer spending spree.

If Arsenal can't get their report or they don't like the results, there are plenty of other targets for them to consider.
