Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has expressed keen interest in acquiring the services of a remarkably gifted player whom he greatly admires.



Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, has displayed a great deal of interest in securing the services of a player whom he regards as highly talented and has openly expressed his admiration for him.


Fabrizio Romano reports that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is showing interest in Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi, whom he considers to be very talented.


With potential departures of Jorginho and Mohamed Elneny due to expiring contracts, as well as uncertainty surrounding Thomas Partey’s future, Arteta sees Zubimendi as a valuable addition to the squad.


As per the information provided by Fabrizio Romano, it has been revealed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta holds a strong admiration for Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi and is considering the possibility of signing him during the upcoming summer transfer window.


Although Arsenal currently possesses a number of defensive midfielders in their squad, there is a likelihood of multiple players departing from the club in the summer. Both Jorginho and Mohamed Elneny have contracts that are set to expire at the end of June, potentially leading to their departure on free transfers.


Furthermore, the future of Thomas Partey, whose current contract extends until June 2025, remains uncertain. In light of these circumstances, Arsenal has been linked with a potential move for Zubimendi. In a recent statement on his Youtube channel, Romano confirmed that Arteta continues to hold a strong admiration for the talented Spanish midfielder.


Zubimendi is highly regarded as one of the top midfield talents in Europe, catching the eye of various clubs across the continent. Despite his loyalty to Sociedad, the talented midfielder may finally make a move in the upcoming transfer window, with Arsenal showing a keen interest in securing his services.


According to the reliable journalist, Arteta is a strong admirer of Zubimendi’s skills as a midfielder. He is considered a top target for Arsenal in the upcoming transfer window, although there are other players being considered as well.


Zubimendi has showcased his talent as a holding midfielder in La Liga and has attracted interest from various clubs across Europe. While he has remained loyal to Sociedad in the past, the possibility of a move to Arsenal this summer seems more likely due to the Gunners’ sustained interest.


At 25 years old, Zubimendi possesses excellent ball control and is effective in the midfield. His aerial ability and partnership potential with players like Declan Rice make him an appealing option for Arsenal. The success of a potential deal may hinge on the departure of either Partey or Jorginho from the club in the upcoming transfer window.


Bayern Munich is also interested in the highly skilled no.6 player, however, Arsenal is expected to have an edge due to the uncertainty surrounding the appointment of the next manager for the German giants.


In order to secure his signature during the upcoming transfer window, the Gunners might need to meet the player’s release clause, which is estimated to be around £51 million.
