Arsenal are reportedly exploring the possibility of making a January move for Real Sociedad’s standout performer, Martin Zubimendi, according to recent reports.
Zubimendi boasts an impressive track record at Real Sociedad, having featured in a total of 116 games and notched up three goals during his time at the club. His notable contributions have elevated his status in the footballing world, and Transfermarkt.com currently values him at a substantial 40 million euros.
Furthermore, Zubimendi’s international experience extends to one appearance for the Spanish national team, underscoring his potential on the global stage.
Arsenal embarked on the summer transfer window with intentions to strengthen their midfield by targeting two new signings. However, the club ultimately secured the services of Declan Rice and opted against pursuing additional midfield reinforcements, choosing to retain Thomas Partey.
Unfortunately for Arsenal, Partey has grappled with persistent injury issues, posing a significant concern for the North London outfit. With the Ghanaian midfielder now grappling with yet another muscular problem, it appears that Arsenal is actively plotting to secure a new midfielder in the upcoming January transfer window as a potential replacement for the 30-year-old.

Should Arsenal decide to pursue this talented Spaniard, it would require a significant financial investment to secure his services, signaling the club’s commitment to strengthening their midfield for the future.
