Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly set to battle it out for the signing of Celta Vigo wonderkid Gabri Veiga this summer.
The 20-year old Celta Vigo midfielder has caught the eye of many teams this season. He suprisingly became a very important member of the Celta Vigo’s starting eleven, with his performances getting better every week.
Arsenal have been monitoring Veiga for quite some time now, identifying him as a potential long term Xhaka/Partey replacement. However, Arsenal are not the only team from the Premier League to be interested in the Spaniard, with Newcastle United and Manchester United also involved.

The competition for Veiga is increasing on daily basis with teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid & Juventus also interested in signing him in the summer.
Gabri Veiga has made 22 appearances this season, scoring eight and assisting three times from a central midfielder/attacking midfielder spot, which is a fantastic return.
If Arteta and Arsenal are keen on signing him, they must act quickly. There is no doubt that he will be a fantastic signing for The Gunners but also a tricky one since Arsenal have to fight many European giants for his signature.
One to watch very closely come the summer transfer window.
