It has been confirmed by Fabrizio Romano that Arsenal is interested in a Girona star.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal may be in the market for a new left-back as the transfer window draws near, and Miguel Gutiérrez seems to fit the bill.
Three key positions in Arsenal’s lineup need to be strengthened: left back, midfielder, and center forward. Mikel Arteta has taken refuge in these areas as a result of Thomas Partey and Gabriel Jesus’s injury absences.
Ivan Toney of Brentford is a center-forward that Arsenal is considering to expand their offensive options. Meanwhile, Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa has long been a target for the midfield spot. Miguel Gutiérrez, a left-back currently showing off his skills at Girona, is another up-and-coming name in the mix.
Miguel Gutiérrez, the gifted left-back for Girona, is reportedly being watched closely by a number of Premier League teams, including the Gunners.
Since relocating to Girona from Real Madrid in the summer, the 22-year-old has gained notice for his outstanding performances.
A crucial component of Míchel Sánchez’s exceptional team, Gutiérrez has started 11 of the 12 games this year and has provided an assist and a goal. His performances have caught the attention of several English clubs; Arsenal is reportedly currently among the front-runners.
Due to their defensive concerns, which were exacerbated by Jurrien Timber’s injury early in the season, Arsenal only has Oleksandr Zinchenko as a left-back and Takehiro Tomiyasu as a backup. As a result, the North London team is looking into possible transfer options, and they are interested in Gutiérrez.
Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano claims that scouts from Arsenal have been keeping a close eye on the Spanish defender.
Romano mentioned Arsenal’s interest in the youthful left-back in a post on X.
Although Gutiérrez’s contract with Girona expires in 2027, Real Madrid retains a 50% ownership share and first refusal rights in any potential sale. Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich is reportedly Real Madrid’s top priority for 2024,though.
