No, not the old recycled story of how Barcelona are looking to sign Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin. It is the Spaniard on the other flank of the Gunners defence that is interesting the Catalan giants.
Yes, Nacho Monreal is interesting the Catalan giants according to the Guardian rumour page, which offers no apologies for the lack of source for their information.

According to the London Standard, Arsenal are considering a late window bid of around £26.9million for Besiktas and Croatia centre-back Domagoj Vida. The Turkish club are understood to be willing to sell the 29-year-old this summer.
Vida impressed at the World Cup and helped his country to the final, where they suffered a 4-2 defeat. Alongside legend in his own lunchtime Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren, the defender formed a formidable central defensive partner for Zlatko Dalic’s side.
Vida’s performances in Russia reportedly attracted the interest of Premier League duo Everton and Liverpool. It seems Arsenal were also impressed by the centre-backs displays. The defender is believed to fancy a move to England and the Premier League. .......Read more here.....

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are willing to sell German international centre-back Shkodran Mustafi for a fee in the region of £22.3million. With the transfer window shutting in a week’s time, it seems like time is running out for a move elsewhere though.
An expensive mistake
It seems signing the German centre-back was an expensive mistake for the Gunners. Mustafi joined the north London club for a fee of around £35million from Valencia two summers ago.
The former Sampdoria and Everton defender was supposedly the answer to Arsenal’s centre-back conundrum. Unfortunately, Mustafi has struggled to live up to his billing of a top centre-back. .......Read more here.....
