EPL: Arsenal to sign Real Madrid star Arteta

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, is reportedly set to sign Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy this summer.

Arsenal fell short of winning the Premier League this season, but Arteta's team has secured a place in the 2023/2024 Champions League.

Arteta is looking to bolster his squad in the coming months, with Champions League experience being a top priority.

Mendy has emerged as a possible option, with Real Madrid willing to offload the Frenchman, due to his injury record over the past year.

According to Daily Mirror, the Los Blancos are open to selling Mendy for around £17.5million, which would come within Arteta’s transfer budget for the summer.

Arteta is planning a defensive reshuffle this summer transfer window, with Oleksandr Zinchenko potentially moved into midfield, with Mendy a possible direct replacement for the Ukraine international at left-back.

Kieran Tierney has been linked with a move away from Arsenal after growing frustrated with his role as Zinchenko’s deputy this season.
