About Football Express UK

Arsenal have been linked with a move for David Raya this summer transfer window and Mikel Arteta is said to be the driving force. Journalist Paul Brown shared that the Brentford Goalkeeper is someone Mikel Arteta has been a big fan for for quite some time now.

Recent reports have been suggesting that Arsenal are very keen on the Spaniard’s signing. These same reports have been suggesting that Raya has reached an agreement in principle with Arsenal on personal terms and wants the deal to be done quickly.

In terms of price tag, Raya is apparently rated at £40million by his club Brentford. However, the Daily Mail has reported that £30million could be enough for Arsenal to land him as he only wants Arsenal this summer.

Mikel Arteta likes Raya very much and wants him to fight for his place in the club

Journalist Paul Brown was speaking to GiveMeSport. He shared more about how keen and excited Gunners manager Arteta is on signing Raya.

He said:

“They’ve been interested in this guy for a long time. Arteta went for him once before and really likes the fact that he’s great with his feet. He would fit into their system really nicely.“

With Aaron Ramsdale the current as number one. Mikel Arteta could have an abundance of talent in between the sticks next season at Arsenal.

David Raya is a great goalkeeper. He not only is he a good shot stopper. But he is also great on the ball. Arguably, he is better in most departments than Ramsdale as a whole.

In the modern game, it is vital that goalkeepers can do it all as the game evolved a lot. Although Ramsdale can do it to a very high standard, it is not a shock to see Arteta want the absolute best as they compete for titles this season.

If they are going to compete with Manchester City next season. Then they need to have a top squad overall. Their form started dropping towards the end of last season. That was only due to a lack of squad depth.
