Arsenal frontrunners to land Real Sociedad young midfielder Martin Zubimendi
There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Martin Zubimendi in the last period.
As per Spanish media, Arsenal are frontrunners to land Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi.
The 24-year-old has come through the youth ranks of Real Sociedad and has successfully managed to establish himself as a key member of their senior team. He is under contract until the summer of 2027.
In 26 appearances this season, Zubimendi has managed to score one goal and contributed with three assists.
Martin Zubimendi has represented Spain at Under-19, Under-21 and Under-23 level, winning 9 caps, before making his senior international debut in June 2021. As a member of Spain national football team, Zubimendi won one cap.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Mikel Arteta sees Zubimendi as the perfect addition to his midfield. Arsenal have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Someone with Martin Zubimendi’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Mikel Arteta‘s midfield.
The Gunners are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old will add a new dimension to Arsenal’s midfield.
According to the report, “Arsenal are now favourites to sign Real Sociedad star Martin Zubimendi in the summer. Sport says Zubimendi could move to the Emirates during the summer transfer window. The midfielder is betting on the Gunners to activate his £52.9million release clause. Barcelona have also registered an interest in the Spain international but the North Londoners are leading the way.”
