Levante’s goalkeeper, Aitor Fernandez, has confirmed that Arsenal have been in touch with him to discuss a move to London.
Arsenal sold Emi Martinez to Aston Villa during the summer transfer window and, while they brought in Runar Runarsson, he was never intended to be number two at the club. Rather, he’s a replacement for Matt Macey as he sees out the final year of his contract.
As such, Arsenal are on the lookout for a number two and are seemingly looking away from Brentford after David Raya signed a new deal, although that does contain a release clause for next summer
“Yes, it’s true that there have been contacts,” Fernandez told AS, via Sport Witness, when they asked if Arsenal and Athletic Bilbao had been in touch.
“Quite a few clubs have asked, and those are two of them. But here I have been very happy, and I hope to continue being so.”
The 29-year-old signed for Levante in the summer of 2018, moving from CD Numancia for £900,000.
He signed a five year contract which will not expire until 2023 and it seems as if he’s not overly keen on giving up a number one shirt to warm Arsenal’s bench.
