EPL: Arsenal to sign two LaLiga stars in January

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly looking to bolster his squad by targeting two La Liga stars in the upcoming January transfer window.

According to Fichajes, the two La Liga players are midfielders Martin Zubimendi and Guido Rodriguez.

Both Zubimendi and Rodriquez conform to the skill set Arsenal aim to incorporate into its midfield, earning them Arteta’s endorsement.

Arsenal anticipate several key departures, most notably Jorginho and Thomas Partey.

Preliminary discussions with Zubimendi’s current club, Real Sociedad, have already been initiated, which indicates an honest desire to sign the midfielder.

However, a substantial stumbling block persists in the form of Real Sociedad’s asking price for the player.

Arsenal are reluctant to meet Real Sociedad’s valuation of €60 million for Zubimendi.

As part of a contingency plan, the Gunners also have Rodriguez, who plays for Real Betis, on their radar.
