Boost for Arsenal as Real Sociedad accepts they will lose Gunners target

Arsenal has received a boost in their pursuit of Martin Zubimendi as the midfielder continues to impress at Real Sociedad.

The Gunners have been monitoring the Spaniard since last season, considering him a target for acquisition under Mikel Arteta.

However, a deal couldn’t be reached in the summer as Zubimendi expressed a desire to play for Sociedad in the Champions League, and his club was not willing to let him go at that time.

According to a report on Sport, Sociedad’s stance has now softened, and they acknowledge the inevitability of Zubimendi leaving. They are now prepared to offload the midfielder and have identified a replacement, seeking the best possible fee for his departure.

While Arsenal is keen on securing his services, Barcelona is also reportedly interested in acquiring his signature, adding competition to the pursuit of the talented midfielder.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zubimendi is the latest in the long list of fine midfielders to come out of Spain and we will sign a top player if he joins us.

But Barcelona is also a top club and he would not have to learn a new language if he moves there.

  1. He came in for Rodrigo in la roja’s previous game and put in a pretty good performance. If Thomas is truly on his way out next summer then I’d fancy we sign him as replacement.

  2. If TP is being moved on the guy to replace him is Youssouf Fofana of Monaco imo.He is very similar to Partey in terms of stature, strength, pace,ball skills and intelligence.A proven ,high quality footballer who would cope well with the demands of the EPL.

    1. I think he’s great, but isn’t he more of a box to box midfielder than TP? He might work really well with rice, regardless

  3. It is a midfielders market, the gaffer prefers technical and good passers of the ball as opposed to powerful and physical players.

    Think he’s the gaffer types of signing, the good news is , the reported war chest should be able trigger his release clause of £53 mill
