New Barcelona signing Frenkie De Jong has revealed that he sees himself at Arsenal.

De Jong made the admission in an interview with Voetbal International shortly after his unveiling as a new player at Barcelona.

According to him, he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Arsenal legend Marc Overmars who moved from Ajax Amsterdam to Arsenal to Barcelona during his influential career.

Frenkie De Jong admitted that he wanted to play for the Gunners.

The 21-year-old was recently unveiled as the new Barcelona player earlier this month.

Barcelona had earlier agreed on a €75m deal to sign Frenkie De Jong from Ajax Amsterdam in the winter transfer window.

The player stayed at the Dutch Eredivisie giants for the remainder of the season.

Frenkie De Jong was part of the Ajax Amsterdam team that reached the Champions League semifinals before they were knocked out by Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

In addition, Ajax Amsterdam also won two major trophies namely the Dutch Eredivisie title and the Dutch Cup.

Frenkie De Jong was linked with Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) before Barcelona won the race to sign him.

The Dutch international midfielder is out of the financial reach of the Gunners.
