Arsenal has been linked with a move for Alex Grimaldo in recent months, which is surprising.
The Spaniard currently plays for Benfica in Portugal, where he has spent the majority of his senior career; however, his current contract expires in the summer, and he is expected to leave the club.
During the last transfer window, he was linked with a move away, and he was expected to join a top club such as Manchester City or Juventus.
However, no agreement was reached, and he remained with the Champions League contenders.
Arsenal has three capable left-backs, and they even loaned out Nuno Tavares in the last transfer window, where he is flourishing.
Despite this, a report on Fichajes.net claims they are still interested in Grimaldo.
It claims that they are one of the clubs vying for his signature, but they are up against Newcastle and Everton.
Every player will choose Arsenal over Everton or Newcastle, but only if the player desires to play for a top club.
If Grimaldo‘s primary goal is to continue playing regularly, he may decline Arsenal’s offer because he will struggle to find playing time.
