David Villa targeted by Arsenal

World Cup winner David Villa has recently been targeted by England's own Arsenal. The team has made it very clear to Villa that he can in fact leave Barcelona whenever he wanted. With Villa only starting 9 of the last 25 matches arsenal is beginning to look like a good option.

Villa was extensively linked with a move to the Emirates in January, with Arsene Wenger under pressure to reinforce his struggling squad, but the Gunners failed to conclude a deal for Spain's all-time leading goalscorer.

The 31-year-old, who returned from almost a year out with a broken shinbone in August, has struggled to nail down a regular place in the Barca team and has started just nine of their 25 La Liga matches so far this season.

Arsenal are expected to renew their interest in Villa in the summer, with Wenger expected to be handed a £70million transfer kitty.

And their pursuit of the former Valencia star has now been handed a boost after Nou Camp chief Bartomeu admitted Villa will be allowed to leave if he wants to.
