Arsenal close to sealing exciting £25million Premier League signing
Arsenal’s initial bid to secure Brentford’s talented goalkeeper, David Raya, is expected to be met with resistance as it falls slightly below the London club’s valuation. Nevertheless, negotiations are still ongoing, with both parties eager to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
The 27-year-old shot-stopper has caught the eye of other clubs this summer, including Bayern Munich and earlier in the window, Tottenham. Despite the competition, Brentford’s resistance to lower their £40million demands earlier in the window saw other potential suitors look elsewhere and it has left them in a poor negotiating position, having already signed his replacement and the Spaniard having just one year left on his contract at the club.
