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.
