Barcelona Could Include Bojan Krkic In Deal For Arsenal's Gael Clichy - Report

Krkic could be included in a player-plus-cash deal for Clichy...
Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic could be offered to Premier League side Arsenal in a deal for left-back Gael Clichy, according to Sport.

Barca are not reportedly completely satisfied with the performances offered by last season's summer signing Maxwell and would look for a player to relieve the Brazilian and to allow Frenchman Eric Abidal to take on a more supplementary role as he continues to age.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not reportedly intend on selling his left-back, but an attractive offer could sway the Frenchman's persuasions. Clichy's reported valuation is €18.5 million, but with Barca unwilling to shell out such cash, offering Krkic, a player who has caught Wenger's attention, as a trading piece in the deal could greatly improve the terms of the agreement.
