Arsenal are looking to add David Raya to their team after losing Emiliano Martinez.
And according to The Telegraph, the Gunners have to agree to loan back the former Blackburn trainee for the season before Brentford will agree to sell him.
Mikel Arteta’s side has just sold their backup goalkeeper, Martinez to Aston Villa and Bernd Leno will need help.
Raya helped Brentford to reach the final of the Championship playoff last season and they are looking to fight for Premier League promotion again this season.
They are determined to keep hold of a majority of the players who helped them last season and Raya is one of them.
The report claims that they have rejected Arsenal’s offer for the goalie, but they will probably sanction the move if the Gunners agree to loan Raya back.
This makes a transfer difficult because Arsenal is making a move for the Spaniard to cover for a player that they have already lost.
