The 23 year old midfielder has been linked with a move to La Liga winners Barcelona since the beginning of the summer, with the Catalans revealing their interest to the media over and over again.
A €35 million bid had officially been rejected by Arsenal from Barcelona in the beginning of the summer, but now, Freixa claims Arsenal simply won’t consider any offer.
“Arsenal don’t want to sit down and negotiate with us. It’s not a problem with the wishes of Cesc or of Barca – they simply don’t want to negotiate.”
He told reporters on Monday evening.
Meanwhile, after the sale of Yaya Toure to Manchester City, Freixa also said that a new defensive midfielder is on their wish list knowing that there is no cover for Sergio Busquets.
“The technical secretary is working hard on that.”
