According to Record, Arsenal, Juventus, and Atletico Madrid are all contenders to secure the signature of the 23-year-old player. Gimenez has made the decision to depart Feyenoord at the conclusion of the current season following two highly successful years in Rotterdam. He aims to transition to one of Europe’s more prominent leagues.

The report suggests that Gimenez will initiate discussions with various clubs regarding a potential move during the summer transfer window. Feyenoord is reportedly willing to entertain offers for him if the price is right. The striker is inclined towards a switch to La Liga, believing it aligns well with his style of play. Although Barcelona and Real Madrid have shown interest, financial constraints for the former and reservations about his readiness for such a leap by the latter increase the likelihood of Atletico Madrid securing his services.

Since joining Feyenoord from Cruz Azul in 2022, the Mexican forward has made a significant impression. He has amassed 47 goals across 84 appearances in all competitions in the Netherlands, with 24 of those goals coming in the current season.

Prior to engaging in negotiations with clubs like Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, Gimenez aims to contribute to Feyenoord’s pursuit of KNVB Beker success as they face NEC in the final on Sunday.
