Arsenal Keeping Tabs With €25m-Rated Creative La Liga Midfielder
Several reports over the past few days have made Arsenal’s interest in Joan Jordan clear. Arsenal have ‘intended to offer’ €35m for the Spaniard this month, but were told a winter transfer wasn’t on the agenda. Sevilla intends to keep Joan until the end of the current campaign at least, as interest in his signing grows across Europe….Arsenal Keeping Tabs With €25m-Rated Creative La Liga Midfielder
Gunners like the footballer a lot and came forward to find out if a move was possible in the January window. Having been knocked back, it’s stated they keep the midfielder in their wider plans for the 2021/22 campaign. Joan Jordan has a €60m buyout clause and Sevilla can use that to protect themselves.
That report stated Sevilla set a €30m asking price for a move this month and Arsenal weren’t prepared to meet it. Those specific claims contradict the details of what is being said in Spain, however, it seems that the Gunners interest is genuine so this is certainly one to keep an eye on ahead of the next window.
There’s a conceivable opportunity that this track was one Gunners went down before then moving to secure Martin Ødegaard on loan. Gunners will face serious contest from Serie A though, as Inter Milan, AC Milan, Napoli and Roma are monitoring the 26-year-old midfielder.
All four of the Italian giants have made inquiries about Joan, who Sevilla could be tempted to cash in on this summer when he will have two years left on his contract. If Sevilla’s demands are met, it will mark a significant profit on the fee of around €14m that they paid Eibar for his services in July 2019.
