Arsenal Handed Boost In Pursuit Of €20m Spanish Defender

By on April 1, 2015

Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of full-back Jose Gaya after he turned down a new contract from Valencia.

We were strongly linked with a move for Gaya back in January but it’s believed Arsene Wenger delayed making a formal move due to Nacho Monreal’s improved form in recent months.

However, with speculation constantly linking Monreal with a move back to Spain this summer, reports have suggested the boss will renew his interest in Gaya at the end of the season and is ready to trigger his €20m (£15m) buy out clause.

Valencia are desperate to keep hold of him and have been working hard to try and negotiate a new contract that would not only see the 19-year-old handed a huge pay rise, but it would also see his buy-out clause increase significantly.

However, the Mirror claim that Gaya has now rejected their latest offer meaning we can still snap him up for just €20m this summer.

The youngster has been in sensational form for Valencia this season and if Nacho does decide he wants to head back to Spain this summer, then Gaya would be an excellent replacement.

But we aren’t the only one’s interested as the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid are also thought to be keeping a close eye on him, so we’ll have to wait and see whether we’ll be able to win the race for his signature.

    He is 170cm in height.The epl is a physical league and I fear
    our smaller sized guys can be easily bowled over in a 50/50 tussle.
    Notice how Cazorla and Sanchez have been repeatedly fouled.
    If you have a monster like PV4 ,thtngs could be different.Arsenal are the epl shortest in average height.We need some tough guys.
