Arsenal have enjoyed a decent season as Unai Emery has been able to bring back the feel-good factor to the Emirates after the departure of Arsene Wenger in the summer. The Gunners still have old failings such as allowing Aaron Ramsey to leave the club on a free in the summer.

However, Arsenal are looking for a replacement and reports from Spanish tabloid Marca claims that Eibar midfielder Joan Jordan has emerged a target for the club. Jordan has been one of the standout players for the Spanish side and is the fifth most creative player in the league this season

Jordan also represents a bargain for the Gunners as he has just 12 months left on his contract. Moreover is the current release clause is valued at just €12.8million. Unai Emery is expected to be given €90 million to spend on new players in the summer and the Spaniard is looking for bargains.

Jordan is capable of playing across the midfield as he posses the skillset to play as a playmaker, register or a central midfielder. He is also energetic and used to the high press that Emery favours as Eibar uses similar tactics in the La Liga.

Arsenal had signed Denis Suarez on loan in January as a potential replacement for Ramsey but the Spaniard has failed to impress so far. It is believed that Arsenal could fail to take up the option of making the move permanent in the summer.

According to the report Eibar are opened to selling the midfielder and Arsenal are set to send representatives to negotiate a deal for the player. Arsenal had a good summer bringing in Guendouzi, Bernd Leno, Sokratis and Litchnsteiner.

The summer signings performances this season shows that Unai Emery has an eye of spotting bargain signings. Arsenal fans would be hoping that Jordan would be unfazed by the Premier League and become a cult hero when he eventually makes the move to London.
