Arsenal fans can now forget about Zubimendi – He’s made his decision

Last week, Charles Watts stated that Arsenal were still interested in Martin Zubimendi, and I believe we swiftly discussed how he would be a formidable partner for Declan Rice.

As we mentioned, the Real Sociedad midfielder’s excellent ball-winning skills, tackling ability, and ability to intercept play would release Rice from defensive duties and allow him to play as a box-to-box midfielder.

Clearly, activating the Spaniard’s £51 million release clause would not be an issue; the problem would be convincing the player to leave La Real and La Liga to join Arsenal. Well, it appears that the player is adamant about his desire to remain with Real Sociedad.

“Where am I going to play next season? I’m going to be at Real Sociedad. I have a contract with Real Sociedad, and that’s where I’m most comfortable,” Zubimendi said, speaking to El Diario Vasco.

I suppose these claims help Arsenal avoid a transfer scandal. Last year, they also expressed interest in him, but he snubbed them. If Arsenal tried to sign him this summer, he would undoubtedly reject them once again. The North Londoners can now simply focus on other targets, such as Amadou Onana and Joao Neves, who may be ready to move up Arsenl’s wish list.

So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Can we please stop pushing for the Onana signing. Can you imagine how stale our midfield would get by playing both Onana and Rice… We need someone more creative for our number 6. I agree that we can cross Zubimendi of that list though

  2. In as much as Arteta maybe very interested and keen to bring M Zubimendi to Arsenal. As a top holding midfielder this summer..
    But from the look of things suggesting Zubimendi isn’t interested to join Arsenal this summer. But stay put at his Real Socidad club side. Just as he turned Arsenal down last summer window. When they approached hin to have him linked up with the Gunners. But he vehemently refused to do that.
    But what will Arteta and Edu do now in the face of Zubimendi’s refusal again to join Arsenal?
    For, from the in-article stats about him. He looks to have the top class quality defensive holding midfielder’s attributes in him. And this has led Arteta to be pursuing for his signature signing for 2 summer windows now.
    Nevertheless. I want to advice Arteta and Edu not to give up their pursuits of Zubimendi. But keep on pursuing his signing this summer to a logical conclusion.
    And convince him to agree to join Arsenal this summer.
    Because they want him and need him to help Arsenal win laurels next season. This SHOULD be stressed and emphasized to him to accept to join Arsenal.
    Whatever could be the matter or matters making him to hesitate to not have joined the Gunners since last summer. Arsenal SHOULD assure him they can help him deal with the situation that is making him hesitating to not join forces with Arsenal.

  3. Zubimendi prefers working for a small team rather than being part of a large team. He finds fulfilment in his current role and enjoys the autonomy it provides.
