Holding expected to make Spain switch

Rob Holding is expected to leave Arsenal before the transfer window shuts.

He is now the longest serving player at the Gunners, but, despite the season ending injury to Jurrien Timber, there is intense competition for places in the centre-back position, and the 27 year old finds himself down the pecking order under Mikel Arteta.

Despite being a popular figure in the dressing room, he is now at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular first team football.

Earlier in the summer, Turkish club Beşiktaş made a bid for him, but the amount they offered was considered derisory, and was rejected out of hand by the Gunners.

This time, several clubs in Spain are reported to be circling and one of them will be hopeful of completing a deal for a player who has won two FA Cup winners’ medals during his time at the Emirates.
