Arsenal are reportedly showing interest in signing Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda. The 18-year-old right-back has impressed a number of top European teams with his performances.

Hence, the Gunners are monitoring the situation of the right-back. The Sporting director of the La Liga side has also said that they are open to selling any player for the right price.


According to reports, Arsenal are showing interest in signing Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda. The report also claims that the right-back is open to moving to the Premier League. It also claims that they are in advanced discussions with the La Liga side over a transfer fee. The 18-year-old has recently signed a new contract with the club. Hence, he has now a 30 million release clause. Therefore, it is going to take a determined club to spend big money on an 18-year-old.

The report also claims that Arsenal will make a 15 million bid for the 18-year-old. Hence, the La Liga side will open negotiations to sell their young right back. However, they are expected to reject the 15 million bid. The report also confirms that his release clause will rise to 45 million after 22 games. Hence, it is better that the Gunners negotiate a good deal before he has played 22 games. Although, the transfer link has confused the Gunners fans due to one big reason.


Ivan Fresneda’s transfer link has confused Arsenal fans because of a number of reasons. The first big reason is the Premier League giants already have a limited budget to work with. In that also, they are focusing on signing a midfielder, a right winger, and a striker. Hence, the reports surely indicate that a right-back is not the priority for Mikel Arteta in January. Therefore, the links to Ivan Fresneda are certainly a surprise. The potential transfer link also raises a number of questions.

It is that at the moment the club have Ben White, Takheiro Tomiyasu, and Cedric fighting for the right-back starting spot in the team. Hence, there is literally no chance of having Fresneda in the first-team squad. Therefore, the Gunners will have to sell one of the players to make space for the young-right back. However, there is one encouragement. Real Valladolid Sporting director Fran Sanchez has said that the La Liga side are open to selling their players for the right price. It is because it helps them balance their financial books for the year.

Hence, a number of reports are going to crop up in the coming days to talk about the interest of Arsenal. However, the priority for Ivan Fresneda is to keep performing brilliantly for the team. This will see a number of teams show interest in the defender. At the moment, Newcastle United are also showing interest in the young-right back.
