Reports in Spain claim that Valencia have joined Barcelona in the hunt for Arsenal midfielder Edu.
The Brazilian star's future at Highbury is the subject of intense speculation as he has refused to sign a new deal with The Gunners.
His current contract expires at the end of the season leading some of Europe's top clubs to assess his situation.
Barcelona, along with Manchester United, have long been mooted as admirers and have been tipped to move for him when the transfer window reopens as
they look to bring in a defensive midfielder to ease their injury problems.
However, it appears that Valencia are willing to battle their Primera rivals for the South American.
