Arsenal target Ivan Fresneda misses training amid Gunners interest. Ivan Fresneda, a right-back for Real Valladolid, skipped training on Wednesday due to interest from both Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal.
Today, the 18-year-old will decide on his future after Mikel Arteta’s team matched Dortmund’s £13 million bid.
Fresneda was ‘missing with pain,’ according to MARCA, a Spanish news site, from club training in the northwest of the nation.

Recall Cedric Soares was recently loaned out by Arsenal to Fulham, according to sources, in order to make room for Fresneda to perhaps fill the void.
Sportsmail reported yesterday that Arsenal have matched Dortmund’s bid for Real Valladolid, with the 18-year-old guaranteed a season-long loan with whichever team he selects.
Since September, Fresneda has started every game for Jose Rojo Martin’s team, making 12 appearances in all competitions.
Additionally, he has played for and earned four caps for Spain’s U18 and U19 teams.
