Barcelona are set to beat Arsenal to the signature of Borussia Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to north London and the Gunners, set to lose Bacary Sagna to Manchester City, have scouted the right-back on several occasions.

However, Barca have opened talks with the player's agent to complete a deal this summer, although there is still one stumbling block over Piszczek's transfer fee.
