Martin Zubimendi Ibáez, a midfielder for Real Sociedad, has said that he will not be joining Arsenal “for now,” although he is open to the possibility of doing so in the summer.
The Olympic silver medalist from Tokyo 2020 is only thinking about finishing the season with his hometown team before he talks about any possible moves.
The idea of playing at the Emirates and being coached by compatriot and fellow San Sebastián native Mikel Arteta is the preferred transfer option for Zubimendi.
But he insisted that he will not talk about any possible moves until he finishes the season with his hometown team.
According to many sources, the player is allegedly “more likely to depart for the Premier League” as opposed to joining Barcelona if he ever decides to leave Real Sociedad in the future. This is the opinion of those publications.
If he were to leave Real Sociedad, it seems that Nicolas Zubimendi would be “more inclined” to join Arsenal than to remain in La Liga.
This is despite the fact that Barcelona is keeping tabs on him as well and believes he would be an excellent replacement for Sergio Busquets.
It has been stated that Chelsea are willing to outbid their rivals and pay the price of the midfielder, which is between €40 and €50 million. Chelsea are one of the teams that have shown interest in Martin Zubimendi.
