Arsenal lodge bid to sign Man City’s Nicolas Otamendi, say Super Deporte

Arsenal & Man City’s Nicolas Otamendi

Super Deporte, the daily Spanish paper focusing on the Valencia region, has plastered a picture of Man City’s Nicolas Otamendi on their Sunday splash.

The big story presented by Super Deporte is that Otamendi wants to leave Man City this summer.

The Argentine is reportedly headstrong on joining Valencia for the 2019-20 season.

However, amid the possibility that Otamendi will be on the move this summer, it’s revealed that Arsenal have tabled a bid for the centre-half.

Readers are told the following:

Otamendi has important offers on the table from Arsenal, Atlético Madrid and Paris Saint Germain but he has not wanted to listen to them.

His dream is to return to Valencia CF and play the Champions League with the black and white shirt.

Do the Arsenal links make sense?

Arguably, yes.

Especially after last week’s revelations that Arsenal club captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to America on the club’s pre-season tour.

The general understanding is that Koscielny is looking to leave Arsenal this summer.

Will Man City sell Nicolas Otamendi?

Now 31, Nicolas Otamendi is under contract with Man City until 2022.

Last season, Otamendi made 18 appearances for Man City in the Premier League, and 33 appearances in all competitions.

The way that Super Deporte tell the story, Man City seem open to selling the centre-half, provided that the Sky Blues receive a satisfying offer.

Will Otamendi end up joining Valencia?

Super Deporte seem to believe that if Otamendi does leave Man City, the only club that he’ll join is Los Che.

The paper also reveal that “there have been contacts between the black and white club and (Otamendi’s agent) Jorge Mendes”.

How much will Otamendi cost?

Sadly, that issue isn’t dealt with by Super Deporte.
