Arsenal boosted in their pursuit of La Liga defender

Athletic Bilbao Spanish central defender Unai Nunez has reportedly changed his agent amid interest from Everton and Arsenal.

The 22-year-old player is miserable with his current situation in the Spanish team, with the winter transfer window just around the corner.

Both Arsenal and Everton have been massively linked with an agreement to join the player – so is a transfer to England becoming true at this point?

When a player changes their agent, especially around this period of the year, it’s an explicit join that they are looking to make a deal occur.

All signs point towards this with Spanish defender, who is said to be troubled in Spain after falling out of favour.

A Premier League transfer is looking more and more likely by this point, but who he signs remains to be seen.

The report doesn’t specify that the Spaniard is trying to force a move, but it seems like he wants out of Bilbao.

If he is unhappy about playing time, a move to Everton would make it better for the defender, so that could be the way that he looks to take.

Bilbao are not going to lose him on a free, so if the defender is trying to force a move, he might have to dig his heels in.
