Arsenal report: Superstar midfielder on verge of accepting agreement for summer move.



A pre-commitment is nearing completion for Arsenal to acquire a new midfield superstar in preparation for a summer transfer.

The Gunners are constrained by budgetary limitations, having broken their transfer record for England international Declan Rice for approximately £200 million last summer. The free-spending has left Mikel Arteta’s squad five points behind league leaders Liverpool with very little capital to work with this winter.


However, preparations for the upcoming season have already begun, as Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is expected to make the move permanently after spending the current season on loan. A greater portion of the north Londoners’ summer budget has been allocated to acquire another star.AS in Spain reports that Martin Zubimendi is nearing an agreement to transfer to the Emirates Stadium. According to reports, the Real Sociedad player will remain in San Sebastian for the remainder of the current season before joining his new club in the summer, when Premier League PRS restrictions will allow the transfer to proceed.AS is not the only Spanish outlet to assert that this agreement is nearing completion. predicted that Arsenal would surpass Barcelona in the transfer of the 25-year-old Arteta, who prefers to partner Rice in midfield rather than replace Sergio Busquets. Mundo Deportivo recently declared that Arteta was “ready” to fulfill the €60 million release clause. This agreement may have been in the works for at least a year. As previously disclosed by FourFourTwo earlier this season, Kieran Tierney’s loan to La Real last summer in lieu of more prominent suitors suggested that he might have been used as a “sweetener” in exchange for a transfer that would have allowed Zubimendi to leave La Liga for the Premier League. However, it is not impossible for Zubimendi to reject Arsenal, as he did so during the previous winter. Recent reports indicate that the Basque schemer’s decision regarding his future at the Anoeta Stadium remains uncertain.


Transfermarkt assigns to Zubimendi a valuation of €50 million.
