A year ago, the Gunners attempted to recruit Zubimendi but were unsuccessful. Instead, they chose to use the entirety of their summer budget to buy Declan Rice for £105 million. Arsenal is offering “serious” competition for Zubimendi, who is one of the Bundesliga champions’ main summer targets, according to Bild’s Bayern Insider podcast.

According to the podcast, Zubimendi and Mikel Arteta have already had discussions, and the midfield player is open to joining Arsenal.
