Arsenal reportedly aims to secure a deal for Spanish rising talent Yarek Gasiorowski, who showcased his prowess by scoring a hat-trick as a centre-back during the international break.

Gasiorowski has garnered praise in Spain since joining Valencia’s first team last summer. His standout moment came when he scored three goals for Spain’s U19 team against Moldova, drawing attention from various quarters.

Despite previous attempts by Arsenal to sign Gasiorowski being thwarted by Brexit-related regulations preventing Premier League clubs from signing players under 18, reports from Spanish outlet Diario AS suggest the Gunners are persistently pursuing the young player.

Mikel Arteta’s team is actively seeking to reinforce their squad in pursuit of their first Premier League title since the Invincibles era. While defensive players like Gasiorowski are on their radar, Arsenal has also been linked with Brentford’s Ivan Toney, noted as the manager’s top priority.

Presently positioned third in the league standings, Arsenal trails behind reigning champions Manchester City. However, an earlier victory against City this season and being just one point off the top spot signifies their potential.

With a crucial match against Brentford approaching, Arteta’s side aims to maintain their impressive form in pursuit of their title aspirations.
