Arsenal prepared to activate £50m release clause to sign LaLiga star who spurned them last year

Introduction to the article:
Arsenal is reportedly willing to trigger the £50 million release clause of Martin Zubimendi, a player for Real Sociedad. Despite rejecting an approach from the Gunners last summer, the 24-year-old midfielder has caught the eye of Mikel Arteta, who is keen on bringing him to north London.

Arsenal’s Pursuit of Zubimendi

Zubimendi has impressed for Real Sociedad, where he has played since he was 12 years old. It is expected that he will not remain with the club for much longer, with interest from other clubs and reports suggesting a potential move this month or in the summer.

Competition for Zubimendi

With his current contract expiring in 2027, Arsenal will face competition, particularly from Barcelona, to secure a deal for Zubimendi. The outcome may be determined by who activates the release clause first and Arsenal’s need for attacking reinforcements may influence when they choose to pursue a midfielder like Zubimendi.

A Look at Arsenal’s Other Targets

In addition to Zubimendi, Arsenal has made an offer to sign Borja Mayoral from Getafe. However, they have faced challenges in the transfer market with Getafe holding out for a higher fee for their star striker. The club continues to explore various options for strengthening their squad.
