DEAL ON: Agent OFFICIALLY opens door for Arsenal to still sign exciting La Liga star
The agent of Ivan Fresneda has opened the door for Arsenal to try and sign the defender in the summer window, after the Gunners missed out on a deal in January
Mikel Arteta was keen on taking his time this transfer window in recruiting players that he believes will add some quality to the squad – with Leandro Trossard, Jorginho and Jakub Kiwior the latest stars to join the club.
But there was big talk that the Gunners were in talks to sign the highly-exciting Fresneda – who has been making a real nae for himself over in La Liga – but despite all the hype and speculation – the lad stayed put.
The promising right back wants to keep his “feet on the ground” before rushing into a decision about his future,, according to his agent, Luis Bardaji, who told AS: “There have been around 30 teams interested. But the truth is that he has hardly aroused interest in Spanish football, but in Germany, France or England there has been interest.
“Some because they had a specific need in this market and others with a vision of the future, but times are what they are.
“Fresneda will be at Real Valladolid until the end of the season. We want him to have his feet on the ground and in other teams he was not going to have the continuity he needs now.”
However, the agent has kept the door open to a move in the future, but admitted that it would be a “historic sale” for the Spanish club.
He added: “Over the weekend, we already informed Real Valladolid that there was not going to be any offer, that he was not going to leave in the winter market.
“For us, it is not a bad situation, no drama, quite the opposite. Ivan is happy to play for Real Valladolid, to be under the orders of Pacheta, who is the one who has allowed him to enjoy the way he is doing now.
“If one day he has to leave, we would like it to be a historic sale for the club.”
