Takefusa Kubo is the latest Real Madrid winger to be linked with a potential move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window. The 19-year-old winger is being considered by Arsenal for a loan move. Takefusa joined Los Blancos from Tokyo in the summer of 2019 but is yet to establish a foothold in their first-team squad.
Having arrived in the Spanish capital with a lot of hype around him, there were invariably suggestions that Kubo could emulate Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo Goes in the attacking department.
However, the Japanese winger was sent out on loan to Mallorca last campaign before joining Villarreal in the summer. The move to Villarreal, though, did not pan out as envisioned, which then forced Real Madrid to haul him out of Getafe, where he has continued to struggle for minutes.
Ahead of this summer’s transfer window, though, an intriguing option in Gunners has emerged. Gunners have already conducted business with Real Madrid over the last couple of years, with Dani Ceballos spending the ongoing and the last campaigns at Arsenal, while Martin Odegaard arrived on loan in the winter transfer window.
Odegaard, in particular, has impressed the Spanish manager a great deal and it has been suggested that Arsenal want to sign him permanently.
However, Real Madrid are expected to slap a hefty price tag on Martin Odegaard, while Liverpool have also emerged in his pursuit in recent weeks, which complicates matters for Gunners. As a result, the Gunners have been linked with several playmakers ahead of the summer transfer window.
