Arsenal are actively seeking to strengthen their left-back position, with Miguel Gutierrez of Girona emerging as a potential target. The current left-back situation for the Gunners are somewhat fragile, with Jurrien Timber’s long-term injury leaving Oleksandr Zinchenko carrying most of the load. While Zinchenko has performed well, the North Londoners lacks sufficient cover in this position.
Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta is not necessarily looking for a first-choice star but rather someone who can compete with Zinchenko. The club have considered other options in the market, including Brentford’s Aaron Hickey.
Arsenal are also planning to extend Zinchenko’s contract, making someone like Gutierrez an ideal addition to the squad. The Spanish full-back, who has a €20 million price tag, has been in impressive form this season, catching the attention of both Arsenal and his former club, Real Madrid.
While Girona may resist offers in January to maintain their strong start, a potential summer move could be on the horizon. Arsenal are prepared to invest in a new full-back in this price range, and Miguel Gutierrez remains a viable option on their list as they continue to monitor his progress.
