Barcelona starlet Toni Sanabria today told the Spanish giants he is definitely leaving - paving the way to join Arsenal on a five-year deal.

Sanabria, 17, is set to follow in a long line of players to quit Barcelona for Arsenal as the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Fran Merida, Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral have all done the same.

Paraguayan forward Sanabria had attracted interested from Roma but that has gone with Arsenal ready to trump their rivals with a big-money contract.
