ARSENAL AND IVAN FRESNEDA TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are showing interest in Ivan Fresneda in the January transfer window. However, they have not made a bid for the young defender. The report also claims that the Gunners have told his agent that a move will happen in January. They have also told that they would like to focus on the Mudryk deal first. However, after missing out on Mudryk, the Gunners should now focus on other signings. Real Valladolid are also open to selling for the right price.
However, they would like to keep him at the club for the rest of the season. Although, the Gunners would have no problems with that.
