David Villa: Barcelona striker not heading to Arsenal

There have been suggestions that the Gunners are keen on bringing the 31-year-old Spain international to the Emirates before the close of the transfer window as they look to increase their firepower.

However, these rumours have been dismissed by the London club and Barcelona also reportedly have no intention of selling the player at this time.

Villa played the full 90 minutes in Barcelona's 5-1 win over Osasuna on Sunday but has failed to win a regular starting spot this term after missing last season with a broken leg.

He has made 85 appearances for Spain and is the country's all-time leading goalscorer with 53 goals.

Arsenal were also linked with Villa earlier this month when Barcelona president Sandro Rosell insisted the striker would not be leaving the club.

"I completely rule out the transfer of Villa during the winter market," Rossell said. "He is ours and we need him, there is a lot of the season left."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
