Report: Arsenal and 15 other clubs make offer for Real Madrid's Gutierrez
Arsenal and 15 Spanish clubs have made an offer for Real Madrid youngster Miguel Gutierrez, according to ABC.
Arsenal need a backup left-back this summer after last season’s debacle. The club allowed Sead Kolasinac to leave without a replacement being signed. It left the team short on the left side of defence, with Granit Xhaka having to fill in during the Europa League.
Gutierrez has a €40m (£34.3m) release clause which the north London outfit have allegedly ‘studied’. The player is holding out on signing a new contract because he wants to see if he makes the first team.
TBR View: Gutierrez can become the new Bellerin for Arsenal amid link with a move
Think back to all those years ago, when a fresh-faced Hector Bellerin walked through the doors at the Emirates Stadium.
The Spaniard would go on to become a stalwart in Arsenal’s defence for years. Three FA Cups and Community Shields later, it seems the 26-year-old is close to leaving.
His career has faded into the abyss. However, Gutierrez can become the new Bellerin amid reports of a possible move.
The player is an incredibly attacking full-back, similar to Bellerin in his early years. He scored six times and registered two assists across 37 appearances last season.
His performances even earned him a call-up to the Real first-team, where he played six times in La Liga.
With one Spaniard departing, a younger one could be arriving. Gutierrez could well be Arsenal’s new Bellerin if the ace’s development continues in similar fashion.
