Several reports over the past few days have made Arsenal’s interest in Joan Jordan clear.
La Razon state that the Gunners have ‘intended to offer’ €35m for the Sevilla player this month, but were told a January transfer wasn’t on the agenda. Sevilla intend to keep the midfielder until the end of the current season at least, as interest in his signing grows around Europe.
Estadio Deportivo, a newspaper close to the La Liga club, reports that Arsenal like the player a lot and came forward to find out if a move was possible in the winter window. Having been knocked back, it’s stated they keep the player in their wider plans for the 2021/22 season.
Joan Jordan has a €60m buyout clause and Sevilla can use that to protect themselves.
On Friday, Calciomercato reported interest from multiple Serie A clubs, and they also mentioned Arsenal. That report stated Sevilla set a €30m asking price for a move this month and the Gunners weren’t prepared to meet it.
Those specific claims contradict the details of what is being said in Spain, however, it seems that Arsenal interest is genuine so this is certainly one to keep an eye on ahead of the next window.
There’s a conceivable chance that this track was one Arsenal went down before then moving to secure Martin Ødegaard on loan.
