Barcelona secures option to sign Brazilian midfielder Arthur

13 goals conceded in 27 games - is this the best Barcelona defence in history? He has also represented Brazil at U17 and U20 level and has been called up to the full squad on several occasions although he is yet to make his debut alongside the likes of blaugranes Paulino and Coutinho.
