Arsenal’s January transfer business has exploded into life over the past week, with the club being patient with their opportunities early on. Leandro Trossard was the first addition of the month, joining from Brighton for an initial £21million fee, adding plenty of quality in depth.
Shortly after came the signing of Poland international Jakub Kiwior, who at 22-years-old adds plenty of versatility to the squad at centre-back, left-back and central midfield. The window is now in the final week and the Gunners may not be finished with their business just yet.
One player linked with a move is Real Valladolid youngster Ivan Fresneda, who has plenty of promise for the future at right-back. With that said, here’s a look at the latest information on the Spaniard’s potential transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
Borussia Dortmund are said to be pushing for Fresneda over the next week, with hopes of beating the Gunners to his signature. That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who adds that Dortmund are discussing the possibility of a loan back to Real Valladolid, while Arsenal will decide how to proceed soon.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Real Valldolid have requested €15million (£13.25million) to let Fresneda leave in the next week. The Spanish club are said to be keen on loaning the youngster back for the rest of the season, something Arsenal aren’t said to be willing to do.
football.london understands Arsenal are tracking a potential move for Ivan Fresneda before the end of the January transfer window. The young full-back has impressed for his side so far and his ability to play in an inverted role, essentially joining the midfield line, fits Mikel Arteta’s philosophy.
