Zapping World Eleven Gareth Bale’s best moments
Arsenal are active ten days before the end of the transfer window. After the signing of Leandro Trossard and the likely arrival of Jakub Kiwior, the Gunners are looking for a midfielder to flesh out a game sector that relies mainly on Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka. According to Spanish radio Padlock Ser, the Premier League leader knocked on the door of Real Sociedad to sign Martin Zubimendi. The Spanish midfielder has a release clause of 60 million euros that the London club would be ready to lift. But the player would have declined the proposal of Arsenal, wishing to end the season on the side of the Basque Country. Zubimendi remains very attached to the club which made him start as a professional.

A key player in San Sebastian
Martin Zubimendi would like to at least finish the season in the jersey of Real. For good reason, the Basques are performing a magnificent exercise in La Liga, ranking third with 38 points collected in 18 games. Imanol Alguacil’s team have also qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League and can hope to end the season with a bang. A great architect of the good performances of the blue and white, Zubimendi played 17 of the 18 league games, scoring 1 goal and delivering 2 assists. The Spanish international (1 selection) is highly coveted by Barça and therefore by Mikel Arteta on the Arsenal side. Still, the midfielder is expected to stay at San Sebastian this winter, before perhaps leaving his cocoon for the first time next summer.
