Arsenal complete signing of Joel Lopez from Barcelona

Arsenal have completed the signing of talented young defender Joel Lopez from Barcelona.

The 16-year-old, who has been heavily linked with the club in recent months, will initially go into Arsenal’s U18 squad.

Lopez has signed scholarship terms and will put pen to paper on a professional deal in March when he turns 17.

Arsenal previously signed goalkeeper Karl Jakob Hein and striker Sam Greenwood for this year’s scholarship intake.


  1. Jeorge, on that Yunus Musah tweet from earlier- might he just still be here, and not Juve, because he’s too young to go yet?

    I’m guessing they follow same rules as us and can’t sign foreign/EU youngsters till 16, and he’s Nov 2002 it seems.

    A little worryingly, if those Italy links are true, think he might be represented by same people as Nelson. Son of ex Swans manager Guidolin seems to be involved with Nelson, and probably Musah as well, as pic of him with Guidolin snr on Instagram.
