Arsenal is targeting a move for young Spanish right-back

Arsenal is the master of taking talented Spanish youngsters away from their clubs and grooming them until they become superstars.

Cesc Fabregas is an example of a player the Gunners plucked from a Spanish side and turned into a superstar.

They now have their eyes on another Spanish talent, with AS reporting they strongly want to add Ivan Fresneda to their squad at the Emirates.

The 18-year-old plays for Real Valladolid and has been scouted by the Gunners for some time now, and they believe he will fit into their squad.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have been successful in buying and grooming young players over the last few seasons and Fresneda could become the next man to fit that description.

However, at 18, he still has so much growing up to do and we must be sure he will get chances to play before we add him to our squad.

If that will not happen, we should allow him to continue playing for Valladolid for now and become a more experienced player before we add him to our squad.

Signing him and keeping him on the bench or sending him to our youth team makes no sense because he could regress on our books.

  1. And what happens to Norton cuffy who is a good talent he will leave just like the way
    Omari Hutchinson left arsenal after the signing of Marquinhos.

    1. Very good point NFtall.Is he any better than NC ?Both have more talent than Cedric who is a decent back up RB but when our priority clearly lies in other positions, why on earth would we consider yet another RB.?

      1. What if there is a need to replace two RBs in the squad?

        Cedric is most probably leaving, so he needs to be replaced. So who else would be leaving?

        Pure Speculation Ahead

        1. If Tomiyasu starts thinking his not-so-great performance in World Cup could be because of lack of game time at Arsenal. He could leave, maybe next summer window.

        2. If William Saliba does not sign the contract extension, he could be transferred out and Ben White could be shifted back to CB leaving a spot for RB.

        (Mother of all speculation)
        3. If Arteta believes Ben White has not adhered to some of his non-negotiables while at the England camp and has made a “dossier”. He could be moved out.
        P.S – No intention on attacking the player as just like everyone else even I don’t know what happened in England camp.

  2. Yes, I agree. If the 18 year old Spanish player Fresneda does happen to join Arsenal next winter transfer window. It makes sense if the Gunners loan him out probably back to Validolid his selling club side to Arsenal.
    First, to the end of the current season, but if Arsenal want it so and Vallidolid embraced the idea. And. are ready to pay a loan fee to Arsenal for resigning him on a six-month loan deal with Arsenal. But this will only happens if Arsenal don’t want to keep him after they’ve signed him to start develop him further by themselves.
