ALMOST DONE: Arsenal Set to Unveil Third January Signing Who Costs €30M – WELCOME 🔴⚪

Alex Crook suggests that the Gunners could try to sign Ivan Fresneda before the transfer window closes. Even Newcastle United want to buy the 18-year-old this transfer window, demonstrating the growing interest in him. Many social media outlets shared information about a prospective transfer of Ivan Fresneda from Arsenal. English clubs have shown serious interest in the 18-year-old La Liga defender since December. A move might happen before the transfer window closes.

Arsenal may now be the frontrunners in the hunt to sign the right-back from Newcastle United. Multiple reports have suggested that Mikel Arteta is fond of the 18-year-old forward who has been impressive for Real Valladolid this season. Since completing their acquisition of Leandro Trossard, Arsenal has been a dominant force in the transfer market. After just 24 hours, word came that the team had reached an agreement with Spezia for centre defender Jakub Kiwior.

Arteta would want to bring in a midfielder and maybe even Fresneda if the circumstances are perfect. There is no pressing need for a new right back at the moment. But Fresneda might step in for Cedric Soares if he decides to go. To accommodate Arteta’s preference for his full-backs to drop into midfield when Arsenal has the ball, the team now employs an ‘inverted’ right-back formation. Ben White has done a fantastic job in the position. He is likely to continue being Arteta’s first option moving forward.

Nonetheless, they are looking for a potential successor, and Fresneda meets the criteria. A number of reports have suggested that the La Liga defender would prefer a move to the Emirates over Newcastle United or even Tottenham.

The defender from La Liga has been widely reported on, and he has been linked to Arsenal. A transfer may perhaps occur. If the Gunners are successful in completing a deal before the transfer deadline, the player could be in London as early as next week.

What’s next for the Gunners?

Wolves are also said to be interested in the defender. But if Arsenal is in it for the long haul, they might end up with him regardless of the competition.

Arsenal will face Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday. If you pay close enough, you may be able to detect the reawakening of a long-suppressed rivalry. Even if a penalty is missed on Sunday at Emirates Stadium, the odds of a crying match between the penalty taker and the perpetrator seem slim.

When Arsenal and Manchester United meet, though, there is a palpable feeling that the tides are turning; whereas in prior years the match’s mystique has been rooted firmly in history, this year marks the first time in a long time that it seems like it has a life of its own.
