Arsenal are interested in Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.
Barca have been offering Umtiti to clubs across Europe, with coach Xavi having no plans to include him in next season's squad.
Sport says the Gunners have expressed interest - but are insisting they'll only consider a loan arrangement.
Barca would prefer a cash sale given the need to balance the books this summer.
This season, Umtiti has managed just the one appearance for Barca this season.
