Real Madrid to battle Arsenal for highly rated Laliga defender.
According to a recent report from The Athletic , Real Madrid is keeping a close eye on the progress of Ivan Fresneda, a highly sought-after prospect in the football market.
The 18-year-old right-back, a native of Madrid, was previously a part of the Real Madrid youth academy before joining the Valladolid youth setup in 2020. Since then, Fresneda has made a name for himself as one of the most talented right-backs in Spain, impressing with his athleticism and work ethic.
The report states that Real Madrid is among several top clubs, including Arsenal, Newcastle United, Borussia Dortmund, and Juventus, who are monitoring Fresneda’s progress.
Dortmund scouts are expected to be in attendance when Valladolid takes on Atletico Madrid this weekend.
Arsenal are also said to be leading the race for the young Spainiard as they prepare for life after Cedric Soares.
However, it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid or any other club will be willing to make a move for Fresneda during the ongoing January transfer window, with a reported asking price of around €15 million.
While the player is in high demand, clubs may choose to wait until the end of the season before making a move.
