Arsenal has set their sights on Real Sociedad’s standout defender, Robin Le Normand, as they continue their search for defensive reinforcements.
Le Normand boasts an impressive record, having featured in a total of 141 matches for Real Sociedad and even managed to find the back of the net twice during his tenure with the Spanish club.
According to the authoritative football resource Transfermarkt.com, Le Normand’s market value currently stands at an impressive 35 million euros, making him an attractive prospect for top clubs in Europe.

One of Le Normand’s standout attributes is his exceptional ability to initiate plays from the backline, showcasing his skill in delivering accurate and incisive passes, a quality highly sought after in modern football.
Interestingly, although the 26-year-old defender is eligible to represent France internationally, he recently acquired Spanish citizenship, paving the way for him to join the ranks of Spain’s national team under the guidance of coach Luis de la Fuente. Since securing his Spanish passport last summer, Le Normand has already made four appearances for the Spanish national team, further solidifying his status as a top-tier defender.
Real Sociedad values their prized defender at an estimated £50 million, highlighting the considerable demand for his services in the transfer market. As Arsenal and Aston Villa intensify their efforts to secure his signature, it remains to be seen where Le Normand will ultimately ply his trade in the upcoming seasons.
