Arsenal transfer target David Raya spotted in the stands at Wembley

On Sunday, Arsenal transfer target David Raya was spotted by supporters attending the Community Shield at Wembley.

As Arsenal and Brentford negotiate David Raya’s transfer to Arsenal, the player has repeatedly expressed his willingness to make the move.

Previous reports indicated that Raya rejected a loan transfer to Bayern Munich and informed Brentford of his desire to join Arsenal on a permanent basis.

On Sunday, Gunners fans saw another indication of Raya’s motivation when the goalkeeper attended the Community Shield to witness his potential new team play.

Shem, an Arsenal supporter and Twitter user, posted a picture of Raya wearing a cap and a hoodie, presumably to conceal his identity.

However, he was photographed alongside teammate Vitaly Janelt, which somewhat revealed his identity.

Sam Dean of The Telegraph has verified that Raya was in fact present at Wembley during the game and that it was not just a couple of lookalikes.

This ultimately does not alter much. Raya’s desire to join Arsenal was already widely known, and it is up to Brentford and Arsenal to agree on a transfer fee.

David Ornstein reported on Monday morning that Arsenal is still working to finalize the acquisition of the goalkeeper from Brentford, with both clubs attempting to reach an agreement.

Whether or not a player’s presence affects the likelihood of a transfer, it’s nice for Arsenal’s fans to see a player eager to observe Arsenal games before joining the club.

Arsenal made an introductory offer of £20 million plus an additional £3 million for Raya.

Ornstein reported that the offer would be rejected, but it was only marginally lower than what Brentford desired.

The Telegraph then reported that the relocation was proceeding rapidly, and Fabrizio Romano predicted that it could be completed by Tuesday. It appears that this could still be the case.
