Arteta takes decision on signing Raya permanently for Arsenal

 Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has decided to sign David Raya on a permanent basis for the Premier League club.

This was revealed by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, on Thursday evening.

Raya arrived at the Emirates in an initial loan deal, but Romano has explained that it was due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

Arsenal will now trigger the £27million buy option clause in 2024.

Romano tweeted: “Understand Arsenal have decided to seal David Raya deal in 2024 — it’s all guaranteed as buy option clause will be triggered for £27m.

“Raya already signed potential long-term contract as #AFC player for June 2024 — all done.

“Brentford accepted this structure due to FFP.”
