Arsenal Target Likely Too Pricey for Juventus and Milan

Martin Zubimendi will be a hot commodity in the summer and, while he has been linked to Juventus and Milan could be keen too, it’ll take a major offer to convince Real Sociedad to sell him. Despite being a strong fit for either side, he’s too expensive for their finances, Calciomercato informed.

Barcelona came close to signing him in the recent past, but he decided to stay put and prolong his contract instead. He has been at the Real Sociedad since he was 12. Given the bond between him and his team, the only way he could depart is if the suitors activated his €60M release clause.

Juventus and Milan wouldn’t have trouble meeting his contractual requests, as Zubimendi demands about €4M per year, but his price tag is too lofty. If he leaves, he’d most likely transfer to the Premier League. Arsenal are currently the frontrunners to secure his services.

The 24-year-old has bagged 4 goals and assisted once in 42 appearances across all competitions this season. He has 4 caps with Spain. After cutting his teeth in the lower leagues, he became a linchpin of the formation in the 2020/2021 season.

Our Take on Juventus, Milan, and Zubimendi

He’s the type of player the Old Lady should target, as a maestro would really elevate their midfield, but they’ll need to use their not-so-rich budget on multiple signings. Instead, the Rossoneri will probably focus on bolstering other positions.
