Arsenal transfer target Ivan Fresneda has release clause halved after Real Valladolid relegation from La Liga

Ivan Fresneda, a target for Arsenal, will have his release clause cut in half this summer as a result of Real Valladolid’s La Liga relegation.

On Sunday, the final day of the La Liga season, Valladolid was unable to secure the victory they required and will now play in the Segunda Division.


Fresneda has excelled in his first La Liga season despite Valladolid’s dismal campaign, and the 18-year-old has already drawn interest from numerous clubs in Europe.

Fresneda was a target for Arsenal during the January transfer window, but Valladolid decided to maintain the right-back in order to stay in the league.

According to Relevo, Fresneda’s release clause has decreased from €40 million (£34.4m) to €20 million (£17.2m) as a result of Valladolid’s relegation from the Spanish first division.

According to the report, Fresneda is a player who interests Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Borussia Dortmund on a long-term basis.

In an interview with The Athletic from April, Fresneda expressed his admiration for Mikel Arteta’s improvement at Arsenal.

I watch the European leagues, and I think Arteta is a brilliant coach. I also think the work he is doing with his club is fantastic. stated Fresneda.

However, we play in that style of play today with [Real Valladolid manager] Pezzolano and before with [former manager] Pacheta, and that style is the one I prefer the most.

In the upcoming summer transfer window, Arsenal is trying to add a new right-sided defender and has already made Sacha Boey of Galatasaray a counteroffer.

According to reports, the Turkish club rejected Arsenal’s €17 million (£14.7 million) offer and is now holding out for a €25 million (£21.7 million) sum.
