A few months ago, Villarreal CF knocked on Girona’s door after seeing that Atlético’s proposal did not convince them. We are talking about Arnau Martínez, a footballer who has seen his presence in Míchel’s starting eleven endangered this season with the arrival of Yan Couto to the Catalan team.
The Spanish nominee for the Golden Boy award has lost weight in the rojiblanco squad, but he is still a preferred option for Villarreal, who may even try to sign him during the upcoming winter transfer window.
Foyth is on Barcelona’s agenda and also on the radar of several British clubs, so whether it’s in the middle of the season or looking towards next summer, the idea is to replace the Argentine with a top-class footballer. The choice of the sports management is Arnau Martínez.
Precisely, the current situation of the right-back position would favor an amicable departure in the near future. Arnau wants to play regularly, and right now, nobody can guarantee him that opportunity. Although he has already shared the starting eleven with Yan Couto, the Brazilian’s performance is currently higher in the eyes of the coach than that of the Spanish full-back. Villarreal wants to take advantage of this situation and bring him to La Cerámica as soon as possible.
Girona is demanding €20 million for the player’s transfer, although Villarreal is considering offering €15 million plus the rest in variables. We should keep a close eye on this operation in the coming months.
