Condition that might help Arsenal land Championship star revealed

Arsenal will have to agree to loan back David Raya for the season before Brentford will agree to sell him, according to The Telegraph.

The Gunners are looking to add the former Blackburn trainee to their team after losing Emiliano Martinez.

Arsenal has just sold their backup goalkeeper, Martinez to Aston Villa and Bernd Leno will need help.

Raya helped Brentford to reach the final of the Championship playoff last season and they are looking to fight for Premier League promotion again this season.

They have made Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma available for transfers, the former has already joined Aston Villa.

Apart from those two, they are determined to keep hold of a majority of the players who helped them last season and Raya is one of them.

The report claims that they have turned down Arsenal’s offer for the Spaniard, but they will probably sanction the move if the Gunners agree to loan him back.

This makes a transfer difficult because Arsenal is making a move for him to cover for a player that they have already lost.

The Gunners also want Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson who plays for Dijon and it seems that a move for the Iceland international is more likely.

    Having watched Brentford on numerous occasions last season, and having enjoyed the fluid way they play, I cannot believe why Arsenal would be interested in Raya.He is a very capable shot stopper, but he lacks the presence in the air at set pieces for example and does not command his area as Martinez did.Small for a keeper, I cannot see him handling high ball pressure in the EPL.

    Dan Smith, so what is it you have to say about this one now?
    Or the media called this one first too?
    SMH.
    Or the Telegraph also is just another site that reports rumors?

    I really don’t think we are in for him and certainly not if he has to be loaned back to them for this season.
    Just my opinion🤔

    If we are getting the Icelandic GK, this deal is surely dead?
