Champions-League-chasing Newcastle are one of the teams said to be interested in signing the 18-year-old defender.

But according to reports, Fresneda has been convinced to join the Gunners.

That’s according to ElDesmarque, who claim Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has “personally convinced” the teenager to move to London.

If Arsenal have indeed reached an agreement for Fresneda’s services, they will have not only pipped Newcastle to his signature.

Spanish big boys Real Madrid were also interested in signing him this month.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti was said to have been impressed by Fresneda’s displays in LaLiga this season, so much so he wanted to bolster his options on the right side of defence by signing him.
