Arsenal could now trigger £53m release clause to sign Martin Zubimendi

Zubimendi Sociedad Arsenal

Arsenal could reportedly trigger Martin Zubimendi’s release clause, with the Gunners interested in a move for the Real Sociedad midfielder.

The 24-year-old has long been link with a move to north London, with reports this month suggesting

That Arsenal could make a move to sign Zubimendi if the funds were to be made available.

With a release clause worth €60m (£53m), the Sociedad maestro would be quite the signing for Arsenal to make this month, especially with the Gunners seemingly prioritising a centre-forward.

Yet according to Mundo Depotivo, Arsenal could pull the trigger to sign Zubimendi,

With the north London side willing to pay the midfielder’s release clause to open up a move to the Premier League.

A player who Fabrizio Romano has branded as ‘special’, signing Zubimendi would be an interesting move from Arsenal given what fans have been expecting the Gunners to do this January.

However, with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny spending the majority of the season out injured,

Another midfielder could be beneficial for Arsenal in their quest to win the Premier League title.

Arsenal to sign Martin Zubimendi in the summer

Given how intensely Arsenal have been linked with Zubimendi,

It might not long before Mikel Arteta launches an official bid to sign the midfielder.

However, whilst January could be a golden chance to bring Zubimendi to the Emirates Stadium,

Waiting until the summer might be the smarter play from Arsenal.

As we know, a goalscoring centre-forward is what the Gunners are lacking in their squad,

And using their limited finances to solve this issue would be a better use of time and money this January.

Moreover, with Sociedad enjoying another fantastic season, there will be a reluctance from the La Liga side to allow Zubimendi to leave,

Who he himself might be keen on for the remainder of the campaign.

Even if Zubimendi decides to leave, and Gunners are willing to activate his £53m release clause,

The likes of Barcelona would be ready to compete for the signing.
