Mikel Merino is one of the names that has the FC Barcelona in his diary like possible reinforcements for the centre of the field of face to the 2024/2025. To Hansi Flick, trainer, and Deco, sportive director, likes them his profile and value the fact that has agreement with the Real Sociedad until 30 June 2025, there are not conversations for a renewal and could leave San Sebastián by 'alone' 25 million euros.

It is a quite inferior price to the that would have players like Joshua Kimmich, Amadou Onana or Martín Zubimendi. However, the culés have not been in conditions to touch the door for 'tantear' his possible incorporation... And it can be a 'big' problem, taking in account that there are other clubs that are interested in his profile. According to SPORT, the Arsenal already has put in contact with the midfield player of 28 years of face to a possible movement.

It would have been, precisely, Mikel Arteta, trainer 'gunner', the one who has moved him the plans that would have for him in the Emirates Stadium in case that it want to 'mudarse' to London during this summer. Merino would be "seduced" by the possibility to return to the Premier League and form part of one of the most important teams of Europe in the actuality. It knows the championship, after a year in the Newcastle, by what would be a very hit movement for him.

Merino does not close the door to the Arsenal

Of agreement to the before quoted source, the born player in Pamplona understands that fichar by the Arsenal would be to step forward in his career and values, deeply, the fact that it would arrive with the confidence of the trainer. The Barça, for the moment, looks the option from far and knowingly that, until it do not solve his problems with the Fair Play financial, will not be in conditions of 'touch' the door of the Real Sociedad.

Like this then , for the moment, the Arsenal has a lot of more options to do with the services of Merino in this summer and would have the 'luck' that the player pretends to resolve his future in the weeks to come. If it goes to leave of the Reale Sand, wants to define it right now and not expecting to the month of August to find a solution. With the Barça, would have to 'lengthen' the decision more than the account, as it seems.
