Arsenal lead race to sign Martin Zubimendi

Arsenal have got themselves in pole position in the race for Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi.

The reports indicating that the Gunners are leading the race for the 25-year-old defensive midfielder’s signature.

The North Londoners are looking to strengthen their midfield, and the Spaniard has emerged as a prime target.

Zubimendi, who has been with Sociedad since his youth days, has impressed with his consistent performances and is now attracting attention from several top clubs. Despite having a contract until 2027, a €60 million release clause makes his departure plausible this summer.

Barcelona have shown interest in the midfielder, with their sporting director meeting the player’s agents to explore a potential transfer. However, the financial constraints at Barca could hinder their pursuit, leaving Arsenal with a clear advantage.

Zubimendi’s desire to play in the Premier League aligns with Arsenal’s ambitions, especially with Thomas Partey’s potential departure creating space for a new midfield anchor. His arrival could fortify Arsenal’s midfield alongside Declan Rice, providing stability and quality in the centre of the park.

As the transfer window approaches, Arsenal’s proactive approach positions them as frontrunners in securing Zubimendi’s services, adding a promising talent to their squad for the upcoming season.
