Arsenal may consider a move for £53m midfielder Martin Zubimendi rather than Aurelien Tchouameni. Journalist Ben Jacobs has suggested that Arsenal are more likely to go for Real Sociedad star Zubimendi. Jacobs was speaking to Caught Offside as he also noted that Douglas Luiz remains on the Gunners’ radar as they set their sights on another midfielder. The fans at Emirates were hoping for a move for Real Madrid star. Moreover, Football Transfers also reported that the Gunners have made the France international as their primary target.

Ben Jacobs said that it is unlikely for Tchouameni to leave Santiago Bernabeu. However, it is more encouraging news when it comes to the likes of Martin Zubimendi. He said,

“Links with Aurelien Tchouameni are wide of the mark. There has been no approach. Tchouameni wants to stay at Real Madrid, who also have no desire to sell.

“Martin Zubimendi is perhaps more possible in 2024. Arsenal wanted the Real Sociedad midfielder in January but there was no player buy-in and the La Liga club also didn’t want to sell. Zubimendi has a £53m release clause.

“Right now, Arsenal are only holding formative internal talks on all potential names. And from what I am told, if Arsenal have their way they could well look a bit closer to home. Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz is still appreciated. It’s tough because he’s enjoying life at Villa under Unai Emery.”

Although, Tchouameni is a fantastic player but Zubimendi will cost much less than the Frenchman. With Thomas Partey continuing to struggle with injuries, Arsenal will surely be looking forward to get a replacement for the African in January window.
