National team competitions in the summer are a good opportunity for players to increase or decrease their value. However, before the start of the European Championship, Mikel Merino was already being followed by some teams' sporting directors.
One of the first to show interest was Barcelona. However, the Azulgrana team's difficulty in making moves and the fact that he is an indisputable player for Imanol at Real Sociedad prevented the operation.
As reported by 'The Athletic', Arsenal would be willing to acquire the services of the midfielder from Navarre for next season and, without a doubt, the financial muscle of the 'Gunners' is far superior to that of the 'Cules'.
Mikel Merino has a contract with Real Sociedad until 2025 and his first intention is to continue as a 'txuri-urdin'. However, his good European Championship performance has made him one of the most desirable players in the Old Continent. For the moment, the midfielder remains focused on Spain and is only thinking about Real Sociedad.
