Zubimendi fully aware of Arsenal interest

Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi is fully aware that Arsenal have a substantial interest in signing him in the summer.

The 25 year is lined-up to be one of Arsenal’s marquee signings of the summer, with Arsenal having identified midfield as a key area of the pitch where they want to add strength. Thomas Partey is set to leave because of his continued fitness issues, and Zubimendi could be an ideal replacement.

Liverpool are also interested, but whether they take that any further will depend on whether Xabi Alonso becomes their new manager. Alonso knows Zubimendi well from his days as Sociedad’s B team coach, and may look to be reunited with him.

However, Mikel Arteta has his own links with Sociedad, as he was born and raised in the region, and is a big admirer of the 25 year old. He will hope that he can persuade him that the Emirates is the ideal place for him to take the next step in his career.
