Arsenal kept alive their Premier League title hopes with victory over rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Sunday. 

The Gunners raced into a 3-0 lead at half-time, with Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz adding to an own goal.

Cristian Romero pulled one back for the hosts, though, before captain Son Heing-Min converted a penalty to set up a tense final five minutes.

Arsenal held on to record a memorable win and ensure they remain top of the table, ahead of reigning champions Manchester City.

In the meantime, it appears that the North London club are chasing a Barcelona starlet.

As per CaughtOffside, Arsenal have shown interest in Barcelona youngster Brian Farinas.

Xavi is considering bringing Farinas into the first team next season

The 18-year-old is currently playing for the club’s under-19s, but the report claims that first team boss Xavi has been impressed by the teenager and is keen to introduce him into his side next season.

Farinas, a central midfielder, is also said to have attracted attention from German giants Borussia Dortmund.

Both the Bundesliga club and Arsenal are said to be considering a move for the youngster, who is contracted to Barcelona until the end of next season.

If he doesn’t sign an extension with his current side, Farinas would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any overseas club in January next year, before departing Catalonia as a free agent next summer.

Barcelona could therefore opt to cash in on him this summer, but it remains to be seen what price tag they have attached to the player.
