Arsenal are reportedly in a ‘four-way fight’ to land talented right-back Ivan Fresneda.
The Gunners are currently sitting at the top of the Premier League as they look to claim their first league title since 2003/04.
Arsenal haven’t even played Champions League since the 2016/17 campaign, and it seems as though planning to strengthen their squad ahead of a potential return to Europe’s elite competition is already underway.
According to the Evening Standard, the North London outfit are interested in Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda.
So far this season, Arsenal have largely operated with Ben White in an unfamiliar right-back role, with Takehiro Tomiyasu having been restricted to just five starts in the Premier League so far.
According to the report, Fresneda ‘decided to stay at Valladolid’ despite ‘intense interest’ in his services in January, interest that seems set to be re-kindled in the summer.
The report says that Mikel Arteta’s side will, however, have Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Newcastle for company in the race to land the 18-year-old full-back.
The Spain U19 international is said to have a release clause worth £26.5 million in his contract with Valladolid, for who he has made 10 La Liga appearances this season.
