DEAL DONE: Arsenal set to agree transfer of 23-year-old Spanish forward in January

Arsenal have reportedly identified Belgian outfits Club Brugge attacker Ferran Jutgla as a potential transfer target for the future.

During the summer window, the North London giants conducted business which ultimately resolved any outstanding issues that they had in the final third of the pitch.

As well as Gabriel Jesus being signed from Man City in a £45m contract, the club’s hierarchy negotiated a new long-term deal with Eddie Nketiah.

The duo are now established as the top two central-attacking choices under Mikel Arteta, with Gabriel Martinelli able to deputise down the middle if required.

Nevertheless, according to Todofichajes, Spanish head-coach, Mikel Arteta will give consideration to further strengthening that position if an opportunity arises to sign Jutgla.

With his senior experience minimal and La Liga giants, Barcelona needing to generate transfer funds, the 23-year-old was allowed to join Belgian outfits, Club Brugge for just €5m in June.

However, since then, Jutgla has enhanced his reputation with a glut of goals for his Belgian side, scoring eight goals and five assists from just 14 games in all competitions.

Four of those contributions have come in the Champions League, catapulting Brugge to the top of a group including Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and Porto by six points.

With Jutgla possessing a contract until 2027 and Catalan giants not including a buy-back clause, Brugge are in a strong position with regards to his future.

Brugge would allegedly demand in the region of €10m (£9.8m) if teams begin to show an interest at the midway point of the season, although they appear in line to request in excess of that figure at the current time.
