Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler whenever the transfer window does re-open. 

Sky Sports claim Mikel Arteta is believed to be a big fan of his fellow Spaniard and that the Gunners boss is looking to bolster his midfield once this season eventually comes to an end, the campaign currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Soler, who has played for Spain at U19 and U23 level, has become a key player for Valencia over the past few seasons since being promoted to his boyhood club’s senior squad in 2016.

In all, the 23-year-old has contributed 11 goals and 17 assists in 141 appearances in all competitions, as well as helping his side win the Spanish Cup last season.

He only signed a new contract in December, keeping him at Valencia until 2021.

However, Arsenal are hoping to get him on the cheap with Los Ches currently facing financial difficulties.  

Spanish paper Marca reported earlier this season that Valencia need to raise more than £36m in player sales by June 30 in order to balance their books.

There is plenty of uncertainty as to when the transfer window will open with all football currently suspended across Europe’s top leagues due to the coronavirus.

It is currently scheduled to open on June 10 but that will present a number of problems with no definitive date set for the resumption of the season.

FIFA say they are reviewing the situation with regards to window-opening dates and player registrations.
