According to The Athletic, Real Valladolid’s right-back Ivan Fresneda will decide today whether he signs for Arsenal or Borussia Dortmund.
Both sides have identified the 18-year-old Spain youth international as a prospect for the future and have agreed to pay the €15 million asking price.
Whichever team he picks, it’s understood Fresneda will be loaned back to Valladolid to see out the current season. He’s so far made 10 appearances in La Liga and two in the Copa del Rey.
If the defender does choose Arsenal he would be the third signing of the January window.
On Friday, the Gunners completed a deal for Leandro Trossard, who immediately made his debut off the bench against Manchester United, and today, Jakub Kiwior’s move from Spezia should be confirmed.
The only departure expected this month is Cedric who has been heavily linked with a move to Fulham.
If the Portugal international departs, Arteta will have the three goalkeepers and 22 outfield players that he outlined as his aim back in April.
