Transfer: Arsenal ready to sign Valencia left-back


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is plotting a Summer move for Valencia left-back Jose Gaya, according to reports.

The deal is being arranged for next summer and it’s comprehended the club are confident the deal will fell through.

It is reported that he is frustrated with life at the Mestalla and the position of valencia who finished 12th in La Liga last term and are currently just fourth from bottom and battling relegation. With this kind of situation, he could be enticed by a move to the Emirates or anyplace else so far as that is concerned.

Since the 2014-15 season, the-21-year-old is a skilled prospect and has been a key part of the Valencia first team. Gaya has turned himself into a formidable person in the starting eleven and has appeared in 12 of the club’s 15 La Liga matches this season. The full-back also has made 11 appearances for Spain Under-21 side.

Arsene Wenger is allegedly worried about the performance of his first-team left-back choice Nacho Monreal as he is moving toward his 31st birthday, while Kieran Gibbs is yet to be offered another agreement, despite the fact that his present deal just has a year and a half left to run. Arsenal are in shortage of a quality addition to the current options available at the left-back position and the Spanish youngster can surely make up that void. The full-back’s pace and crossing down the flanks could surely help as an excellent inclusion to the Arsenal backline.

The 21-year-old still has three-and-a-half years left on his present arrangement at Valencia and the Spanish outfit is probably going to enquire about an over the top sum with the point of putting off suitors. However, Valencia’s battles in the league imply that they are probably not going to have the capacity to clutch their prized resource for any longer, and could settle for a tremendous transfer fee with Arsenal.
