Arsenal set to seal deal to sign Joan Garcia

Arsenal will soon announce Joan Garcia as the first signing of the summer transfer window after beating Real Madrid to the 23-year-old Spaniard.

According to a report by Daily Mirror, Joan Garcia has been the subject of interest from Arsenal. And the Gunners are ready to win the race to sign the Spaniard in the summer transfer window. While the Espanyol goalkeeper will become the first signing of the summer transfer window for Arsenal, the Premier League heavyweights have beaten Real Madrid to his signature.

The rise of Joan Garcia

Joan Garcia has seen his stock skyrocket after an impressive 2023/24 campaign with RCD Espanyol. While the 23-year-old has not been the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper for the Catalan outfit, his performances have been enough to capture the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe.

The 23-year-old conceded only ten goals in 21 appearances across all competitions while keeping 12 clean sheets. In addition, Garcia’s exploits have helped him earn a spot on Spain’s squad for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Meanwhile, the Espanyol goalkeeper’s progress has not gone unnoticed.

Several European bigwigs have shown interest in Garcia, with Real Madrid recently becoming the first club to consider signing him. The latest updates have linked him with Premier League heavyweights, with Arsenal and Tottenham vying for his signature.

Where will Garcia ply his trade in the 2024/25 season?

Real Madrid’s interest in Joan Garcia is understandable. The Merengues are scouring the market for a goalkeeper heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of Andriy Lunin. Garcia has thus emerged as a viable target, although Real Madrid will lose the race to sign him.

The 23-year-old Olympics-bound Spaniard will likely join Arsenal in the summer transfer window. The North London club’s interest in Garcia stems from the uncertainties surrounding the future of Aaron Ramsdale, who will likely leave Arsenal in the coming weeks to resurrect his stuttering career.

The report has not revealed how much Arsenal will cough up to secure Joan Garcia’s services in the summer transfer window. However, they will likely announce the Spanish international as their first signing of the summer, beating Real Madrid to his signature.
