Arsenal is behind Borussia Dortmund in the race for 18-year-old

Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have emerged as the last two standing clubs in the race for Ivan Fresneda and the Spaniard must decide where he wants to go now.

Reports believe the Gunners and BVB have both tabled a similar offer for the 18-year-old full-back after he impressed them with some mature performance for Real Valladolid in La Liga.

The defender is clearly a long-term investment for either side and a new report has given more insight into the positions of both clubs.

Sport Witness reveals Borussia Dortmund is closer to a deal for him than Arsenal because the Germans have agreed to loan him back to Valladolid immediately.

Also, from next season, he can get chances to play for them regularly, but Arsenal cannot guarantee him that, which is what the Spaniard and his camp want.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Fresneda is a top talent, but he is not accomplished enough to become an instant starter at the Emirates next season.

The youngster needs to gain more professional experience and will struggle to bench either Ben White or Takehiro Tomiyasu.

This could make him choose BVB, who are famed for giving chances to young players in their squad.

  1. So today we get “Sport Witness reveals Borussia Dortmund is closer to a deal for him than Arsenal because the Germans have agreed to loan him back to Valladolid immediately.”

    And yet the previous report (yesterday?) said both clubs would be loaning him back:

    “The Athletic reveals Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have both agreed to a similar deal with his present employers and the youngster now has to choose the club he wants to join.

    Both clubs have agreed that he will spend the rest of this season on loan at Valladolid before joining them in the summer”.

    Let’s just wait and see what transpires? None of these media outlets are trustworthy.

  2. When I first got to know about this deal, I said to myself that he would be better at BVB because at Arsenal, he will have Tomiyasu and White to compete with

  3. I think the Ateletic news outlet is a trustworthy players transfer news out let. Or is it not?
    Nevertheless, has the transfer guru Victor Romanos said anything on Ivan Fresneda possible transferring from his club side Real Vailatolid to Arsenal this winter window? And loan him back to his club for a half-season loan deal?
    If the deal to sign the 18 year old youngster Fresneda by Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are similar. But nothing else is beside the similarities. Then, I believe Arsenal being a top giants Epl club side. And who are far above the Bundelisga Borussia Dortmund club side in European footbal clubs pecking order. Should inevitably be Fresneda’s choice to transfer to.
