Arsenal favourites to sign La Liga player

Arsenal are now the favourites to sign Martin Zubimendi from Real Sociedad this summer.

Rated as one of the top defensive midfielders in Europe, he has also been linked with a move to Barcelona.

However, after their sporting director Deco met with Sociedad earlier this week, they made it clear they would only be prepared to sell him if his release clause of ₤51 million was paid.

Barcelona’s continued financial struggles mean that it will be difficult for them to come up with that kind of money.

The player himself was linked with a move to the Premier League, but, because Sociedad were in the Champions League preferred to stay in Spain.

However, the Europa League is the best they can manage next season, and Zubimendi is now keen to prove himself in a different country.

With Thomas Partey widely expected to leave the Emirates this summer, there will be a gap in Mikel Arteta’s squad to fill, and Zubimendi is considered the main candidate for the job.
