Brentford goalkeeper David Raya has agreed personal terms with Arsenal and will only await negotiations from the two clubs.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that the Spaniard has agreed terms with Arsenal, and the deal will only be a matter of price negotiations between the two clubs.
Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber,and Declan Rice have all moved to Emirates Stadium this summer. With only these 3 contracts, the London Gunners spent over £200 million in transfers.
However, Arsenal did not stop here. According to many sources, coach Mikel Arteta wants to bring in a goalkeeper and a central midfielder.
Raya has excelled in defending the Bees’ woodwork since they were promoted to the Premier League in 2021, playing a key role in the Thomas Frank side’s impressive record in the top flight. England for the past two seasons.
Brentford believes that Raya has the same ability as Andre Onana – MU’s rookie costs £ 47.2 million, so will also require Arsenal to spend the same amount. In case no agreement is reached, they are ready to accept the loss of this goalkeeper next summer due to only 1 year contract remaining.
Brentford has also been proactive for a Raya-free future by signing Dutch international Mark Flekken for £11m from German club Freiburg in May.
If the 27-year-old keeper completes his move to North London, questions will inevitably arise about the position of Aaron Ramsdale, who has become Arsenal’s undisputed number one since his move to Arsenal. worth £30 million ($38.3 million) in 2021. Coach Mikel Arteta could find himself in a situation similar to his own a few years ago, when owning Bernd Leno and Emiliano Martinez both at the same time. main. At that time, Martinez had to go to Aston Villa.
Thus, as long as Arsenal agree on a price with Brentford, the deal will come true. Brentford is said to be asking for at least £40m.
