Arsenal and Dortmund agree £13m Ivan Fresneda transfer fee with 18-year-old set to be loaned back to Real Valladolid | The Sun

ARSENAL and Borussia Dortmund have reportedly both agreed terms for the £13.1million transfer of Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda.

The Spaniard, 18, has impressed in LaLiga this season and attracted interest from a number of clubs including Newcastle.

But now Eddie Howe's men have pulled out of the race, with The Athletic reporting that both Arsenal and Dortmund have deals in place.

It is understood Valladolid will make a decision on which club he will join on Monday.

But whether he joins Arsenal or Dortmund, Fresneda will be loaned back to the Spanish outfit for the remainder of the season.

The teenager is an attacking full-back who has also shown he is a capable defender.

The club have lost five games in a row in LaLiga and are without a win since the beginning of November.

As a result of their poor run, they have slipped into the relegation zone.
