Gabri Veiga has emerged as one of the rising stars in La Liga this season, establishing himself as a crucial outlet in the Celta Vigo side.

The 20-year-old’s creativity and output in midfield have been making waves in Spanish football. It has not gone unnoticed by top clubs either, with Real Madrid among the clubs reportedly interested in the services of the Spaniard in the coming summer.

However, it appears Real Madrid are set to face stiff competition from Arsenal in the race to sign Veiga.

The Gunners hold a long-term interest in Veiga and have shown the desire to sign the player at the end of the season, as part of Mikel Arteta’s plans to further reinforce his options in the middle of the park.

This has been reported by journalist Ben Jacobs (via Caught Offside), who further suggests that the midfielder is also courted by other Premier League giants such as Liverpool and Manchester City.

However, it is Arsenal who have the longest-standing interest in Veiga. The player has also recently changed his agent, further fueling speculations of a move away from Celta Vigo this coming summer.

That said, the Spanish outfit are not too keen on offloading their star player for cheap. They have referred to the player’s hefty €40 million release clause, which could prove to be an obstacle for Real Madrid, if not Arsenal and others.

In any case, Los Blancos are committed to signing Jude Bellingham in the coming summer. The Englishman has been identified as the top target for the European champions and it would be very surprising to see the club prioritising a move for Veiga.

The player, for his part, looks destined to leave Celta Vigo. But it will be interesting to see what fate holds for the young Spaniard as he looks to take the next big step in his career.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
