Should Arsenal pay £52m for Zubimendi in January to replace Thomas Partey?

Martin Zubimendi of Real Sociedad has been identified as one of the players Arsenal aims to add to their midfield.

The Spaniard has been on Arsenal’s radar since last season, and a move to London was anticipated in the summer.

However, he opted to stay with his current club, continuing to impress not only the Gunners but also other potential suitors.

Mikel Arteta bolstered his midfield with the signings of Declan Rice and Kai Havertz in the last transfer window, and additional reinforcements are expected when the current term concludes.

Football London reports that one player they are still keen on acquiring is Zubimendi, given his impressive performances for Spain and Sociedad.

Zubimendi’s existing contract runs until 2027, and Arsenal may need to trigger his release clause to secure his services, much like they did with Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid. Zubimendi’s release clause is reportedly valued at £52 million.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zubimendi has been one of the finest La Liga midfielders around and we will enjoy his talents if he joins us.

However, having not had experience in the Premier League, he may struggle to adapt to how we play in the beginning.

That should not stop us from adding him to our group if Arteta is confident that he needs the player.

  1. Any recruitments should be well-scouted to ensure quality. Kai Havertz is an example of a waste of money; a real disaster. Recruiters were obsessed with his status of a German international and signed him in spite of failure at Chelsea. Our team is already under-performing as a result of Arteta’s experiment with him and Raya.

    Raya is no upgrade. The coach should stop playing him.

    The recruitment goal shouldn’t be based on experiments after a brilliant performance last campaign. Additions in order to upgrade such as Rice and Timber should ever be the guiding principle.

    The thing is, is Zubimendi a haard rock like Rice? If yes, bring him. If no. leave him alone

    1. We’ve been absolutely decimated with injuries this season since day one, that’s the real issue.

      Yet despite that, look how well we’re doing.

      1. To “decimate” actually means to reduce by 10%.
        It is of course commonly misused to mean that someone thinks we will be reduced by far more then 10%, which we have been.
        But THAT is not to “decimate” but to have a great amount of injuries.

        1. I always look forward to your comments Jon, forever you scrutinise everybody’s comments,whether it be a spelling error or just punctuation. You are the be all and end all of all things Arsenal. Your knowledge is prodigious and your wisdom ancient and all knowing. The Illuminati of opinions

  2. I have my doubts about Zubimendi. I have watched him a few times including during the CL game between his team and Benfica.
    His technical ability is not in doubt, but his physical stature is. I’m not sure he has the physique to stand the rigours of the Premiership.
    I also doubt he would want to leave Sociedad for a new challenge overseas just now

  3. I have never seen him play, but he does not look like the Minder Odegaard needs.

    He seems to be a bit light weight.

    I would prefer we got Kalvin Phillips from City.

    I think he would qualify as Odegaard’s minder

    He seems to play well alongside Rice for England!!

    But what do I know? I thought Havertz would be a bust!!
