Arsenal have joined the race for Real Valladolid sensation Ivan Fresneda, with Newcastle United also interested in the teenage right-back.
WHAT’S HAPPENING? The Gunners continue to try and bolster their squad heading into the second half of the season, and have turned their attentions towards 18-year-old Fresneda in a bid to refresh their options at full-back. That’s according to the Telegraph, who report that Arsenal hold “serious interest” in the teenager.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Any move for Fresneda could coincide with the potential departure of Cedric Soares, according to the report, who has been linked with a move to Fulham. Real Valladolid are willing to let the teenager leave this month despite him becoming a key member of their first team, with him said to be available for between £10m to £15m ($12-18m).
