Arsenal have bought another player from Barcelona's youth academy.

On Wednesday, the Spanish giants confirmed 16-year-old Jon Toral is set to follow the lead of Cesc Fabregas and join the Gunners next season.

Reports said the north London club paid £350,000 for midfielder Toral, who was free to sign with any team.

Toral came through Barcelona's La Masia ranks like Fabregas and fellow prospect Fran Merida, who were both signed by Arsenal as teenagers.

World Cup winner Fabregas is now captain at Arsenal and Merida is now with Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal also signed 18-year-old Ignasi Miquel from Barcelona in 2008, with the defender playing in Sunday's 1-1 FA Cup draw at Leyton Orient.
