Spain international striker David Villa, 31, was linked with Arsenal heavily during the January transfer window. It was a move never materialized and Villa has remained with Barcelona.
The rumors, however, have continued in stops and starts.
Late last month, the Daily Mirror's John Cross reported that Villa was looking to force a move away from Barcelona in search of more playing time. But, as Cross wrote, Arsenal were no longer interested.
More recently, the Spanish publication AS has reported that Arsenal and Barcelona have a €15 million pre-contract agreement in place for Villa's transfer to Arsenal this summer (via Caught Offside).
The rumors will be sorted out in time, but for now, we're weighing the pros and cons of Arsenal potentially signing Villa.
