Report: Barcelona To Offer Toure & Krkic For Arsenal’s Fabregas

The Blaugrana could be set to make a stunning bid in an effort to prise the Gunners' captain away from north London.

Barcelona are desperate to tie up a deal to secure Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas for next summer, and they are lining up a swap deal that could see Yaya Toure and Bojan Krkic head to the Emirates.

Blaugrana president Joan Laporta is stepping down next summer. He wants to re-sign the Catalan midfielder, who would become a legacy of the Laporta-era.

Ever since taking over in 2003, the Camp Nou supremo has been irked by the Gunners' move to sign Fabregas from Barca's youth system.

Though Arsenal have resisted the Blaugrana's approaches for some time, the Spanish outfit's latest efforts could bear fruit, according to The Daily Mail.

Toure will be offered for Cesc along with Bojan. The pair are both unsettled at Barcelona, having seen their chances reduced this season by the emergence of other stars.

While the Ivory Coast midfielder is coming second in his battle for a place with Seydou Keita, Bojan has seen Pedro and Jeffren Suarez compete for the wide positions in Pep Guardiola's squad.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may favour the bid as he is reportedly an admirer of both Barca players.

Real Madrid have also been linked with Fabregas. It is widely believed that family pressure would mean a move to Barcelona would be preferable for the playmaker.
