Arsenal Surprisingly Gains Martin Zubimendi Transfer Advantage Following Significant £45m Update

In the latest transfer news concerning Arsenal, the Gunners appear to be in a favorable position ahead of Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the pursuit of Martin Zubimendi from Real Sociedad.

Despite all three clubs expressing interest last summer, Zubimendi chose to stay with his childhood club.
Almost 18 months ago, Zubimendi extended his contract until 2027, reportedly including a £52 million release clause.

While this clause could simplify negotiations, a transfer battle would benefit Sociedad.
Arsenal maintains interest in the midfielder, but a January move was considered unlikely due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) concerns and Zubimendi’s desire to participate in the Champions League knockout stages. However, a summer departure remains a possibility.

At the conclusion of the 2023/24 season, Arsenal is anticipated to engage in more transfer activities, involving both incoming and outgoing players.

The potential departure of Thomas Partey after four years at the club is likely, with Arsenal aiming to recoup some of the £45 million paid to Atletico Madrid in 2020.
Thomas Partey has struggled with injuries over the past 18 months, featuring in just 341 minutes across five games this season. While a January departure was a possibility, his recent return to full training makes a mid-season exit unlikely.

Although Partey could still contribute to the remainder of the season, the 30-year-old heading toward an exit could open the door for Zubimendi as his replacement.

In fact, the Gunners might only need to negotiate one deal to secure both transfers. Contrary to some reports in Spain, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano stated he is not aware of any current developments regarding Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.
