Mikel Arteta wants to bring Eric Garcia to Arsenal

The coach had him at Man City when he was working as Pep's No 2

Eric Garcia’s lack of minutes at Barcelona has opened up speculation about a potential departure to England, with Arsenal interested.

Their coach Mikel Arteta would like to bring Garcia back to the Premier League, either on loan or permanently.

The pair coincided at Man City when Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s No 2. The English media say that the coach is alert to Garcia’s situation.

He is behind Araujo and Christensen at centre-back, Kounde too and even Marcos Alonso at times.

In the last 11 games he has been called up for club and country, he has only participated in two. At 20 years old, Eric needs games.

Xavi says he would like to keep his squad the same between now and the end of the season but a good offer might change Barcelona’s thinking.
