Juventus emerge as surprise candidate for Real Sociedad star alongside Arsenal and Bayern Munich

Barcelona have known for some time that they would face competition if they tried to sign Martin Zobimendi, and with the door open for a transfer this summer, the number of contenders is on the rise. Real Sociedad will also ask to pay his release clause of €60 million, which rules out any move from the Blaugrana for him in the current situation.

Matteo Moretto today confirmed that Zobimendi will consider a move this summer, with Premier League clubs and Bayern Munich also interested in the 25-year-old pivot. Now MD has reported that Arsenal, who have been linked with Zobimendi over the past 12 months as well, and Juventus have already offered him an exit route. This is the first time La Vecchia Signora has been associated with it.

Zobimendi has been one of the best midfielders in La Liga for some time, and was instrumental in the Champions League campaign. He remains happy at the Reale Arena, but it increasingly looks like he will at least be given a decision to make this summer. Barcelona sporting director Deco met with his agent Iñaki Ibanez this week, but no progress has been made beyond revealing his situation.
