Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have been following in the footsteps of Carlos Soler. They consider that the young midfielder of Valencia It can be a great reinforcement to shore up the midfield for the next season, for which they already assume that they will not have Dani Ceballos, on loan from Real Madrid. The London club has already started contacts to negotiate for the footballer, and according to Daily Mail the Valencia has appraised Carlos Soler at 40 million euros.
It is the minimum amount for which the entity is willing to negotiate with Arsenal to let the youth squad escape, a player from the present and the future who has grown a lot in recent seasons. Valencia recently renewed the midfielder until 2023 and raised his termination clause to 150 million euros, but the club must make cash to fulfill its obligations and Soler is one of the entity’s assets.
Those 40 kilos that Valencia asks for are the starting price, because if other teams like Manchester City, Liverpool or Bayern Munich bid for it, its price could go up and Soler would be passed on to the highest bidder. It has also been related to Atlético de Madrid, but the rojiblancos will have trouble making signings of this caliber in the short term due to their economic situation, aggravated by the coronavirus crisis.
Another of the Valencia footballers that several greats in Europe like is Ferran Torres, who fulfills a contract in 2021 and for now does not want to renew. Two young players with a great future ahead who can leave this summer, leaving significant sums of money in the coffers of Mestalla but also a significant gap on the field of play, as they are fixed for Celades and they were also before for Marcelino.
