Arsenal are reportedly ready to pay a huge transfer fee to sign Ivan Fresneda in the January transfer window. Tottenham are also showing interest in the young right back.
However, the interest of the Gunners is getting stronger day by day. Therefore, Real Valladolid are expecting a bid from the Gunners for their star player.
ARSENAL AND IVAN FRESNEDA TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are ready to pay a huge transfer fee of 17.5 million for Ivan Fresneda. Ivan Fresneda is having a brilliant season in La Liga with Real Valladolid. Hence, the La Liga side are expecting to sell him in the January transfer window. However, they will only sell him for the right price. The report also claims that the 17.5 million fees will be a record sale for Real Valladolid. Hence, it is sure that this potential sale will surely help the La Liga club balance their financial books.
A report also claims that they will sign him in the January transfer window. However, there are full chances that he will stay with Real Valladolid on loan from Arsenal for the rest of the season. This is because the reports of Fulham’s interest in Cedric are disappearing. Hence, it is looking like the London side are looking for a different transfer target. Therefore, there are full chances that Cedric will at least stay with the club for the rest of the season.
THE YOUNG DEFENDER SHOULD PICK UP HIS NEXT POTENTIAL CLUB DEPENDING ON HIS GAME TIME
It is clear that along with Arsenal, other top European and Premier League clubs are also showing interest. Newcastle United, Tottenham, Juventus, and Dortmund are also showing interest in Ivan Fresneda. However, a report also claims that the interest of Newcastle United is the most advanced. Hence, the race for the signature of the young defender is heating up in the January transfer window. Although, Fresneda should only pick the club that is ready to give him game time and not loan him out for the next two seasons.
It is because Fresneda is in brilliant form for Real Valladolid this season. Hence, the right-backs should have regular game time to maintain his brilliant form for his new club. Therefore, the interest in Arsenal is a little surprise. This is because, at the moment, they have Ben White, Takheiro Tomiyasu, and Cedric at least for this season in the right-back position. They also have Zinchenko and Tierney fighting for the left-back position. Hence, having a young player like Ivan Fresneda in your squad as a utility player does not make sense at all.
Therefore, it is clear that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has a brilliant future planned for Ivan Fresneda. However, one thing is clear that he will have to wait for a few seasons to play regularly for the Gunners. Therefore, if Fresneda wants regular football immediately with his new club, he should not make a move to the Premier League giants.
