Newcastle working hard to beat Arsenal to a Spanish teenager

Ivan Fresneda is causing a frenzy in the transfer market as he develops into one of the finest young right-backs in Europe.

The Spaniard plays for Real Valladolid in La Liga, but it is only a matter of time before he changes clubs.

The 18-year-old has been superb this term and delivers performances that make observers think he is a veteran.

Arsenal wants to add him to Mikel Arteta’s squad and the Gunners know it will be tough to win the race for the full-back’s signature.

They are not the only interested party, with The Daily Mail revealing Newcastle United also has a strong interest in his signature.

The report reveals the Magpies watched him against Real Madrid not so long ago and are readying an offer for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Newcastle is now in a position to spend big in the transfer market and they will do what they can to beat other suitors to a player.

Eddie Howe is doing a superb job for the EPL side and that could convince Fresneda that he will get playing chances at a top club if he moves to the North East.

If he is a key target for Arsenal, they must act fast to add him to their squad as soon as possible.

  1. Why is Arsenal always in a situation of competing with almost every club in player purchases? Why should the club’s intentions about player interests be publicly c knowledge? Why does Arsenal procrastinate over player purchases? Liverpool bought Gakpo before anyone knew it. Man City simply activated Halland’s former club’s price without qualms. Why can’t Edu adopt this discreet strategy?

    1. We also bought viera without anyone knowing. But sometimes it doesn’t depend on arsenal alone to keep it secret. Some clubs or agent without integrity link the info to journalists like Romano so that they can get bidding war between clubs

    2. Arsenal bought Vieira before anyone knew it. And Jesus was done and dusted as soon as the summer transfer window opened.

      Most of the rumours are nonsense, made up by pseudo-experts who make money by creating and reporting rumours – there’s an old saying “Don’t believe everything you read in the papers” and it applies to transfer rumours in spades.

      There will be a lot going on behind the scenes. Just look at the team that’s been assembled over the last 2-3 years and believe that there’s more to this than meets the eye.

  2. Think we can compete with the money washers, (money launderers) – City, Chelsea and now Newscastle? Think again.

    To level the playing field for all teams, the league needs to find ways to handicap the money washers.

    Kudos to Edu for his bold decision to avoid wasting 85M on a young, unproven winger who couldn’t even make the first team. There’s better value in the transfer window. Money doesn’t grow on trees.

    1. Spot on.

      I cannot understand why so few football supporters don’t understand the money side of football – it shapes everything that happens on the field.
