Arsenal weighing up summer move for La Liga No.3 centre-back

By | July 16, 2020

Arsenal are reportedly one of several teams planning to make an approach for Athletic Bilbao centre-back Unai Nunez.

Since the turn of the year, the 23-year-old defender has been tipped to secure a move to a bigger team, potentially during the next transfer window.

Although there is less talk regarding a possible move to Man City, it appears that several Premier League clubs remain keen on the Spaniard.

According to AS, West Ham United, Everton and Arsenal may make an approach for Spanish defender later back in 2020.

However, Athletic are likely to demand the transfer fee around €30m (£26.97m) is met if they are to allow him to leave San Mames Stadium.

Nunez has made 12 starts and four substitute appearances in La Liga this campaign.

Arsenal are desperate to strengthen their centre-back position ahead of the next season with Mikel Arteta not convinced in David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi.

French centre-back William Saliba will join the Gunners next season, however, his not qualified enough to help Mikel Arteta’s side to compete for all possible trophies.

Nunez has been one of the best defender in La Liga and the Gunners should do everything in order to lure him at the Emirates Stadium.
