Liverpool have set their sights on Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi, who is also a target for Arsenal.

The 24-year-old Zubimendi has emerged as one of the best central midfielders in La Liga, which has attracted the attention of both Premier League clubs. While Arsenal are looking to bring him in to partner Declan Rice, Liverpool, who will soon see manager Jurgen Klopp depart, are joining the race for the Spanish player.

Spanish manager Xabi Alonso has been linked as a possible successor to Klopp at Liverpool, and his possession-based style of play could require a quality midfielder like Zubimendi. Therefore, the Reds' interest in Zubimendi is not surprising given his technical and tactical ability.

With both clubs having the financial ability to meet the deal, Zubimendi's fate is uncertain. His technical skills make him fit to play for the best clubs in the world, and his eventual arrival at Liverpool could strengthen their midfield alongside the likes of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Joining Liverpool would mean Zubimendi would have the opportunity to compete for major trophies, an attraction that is hard for most players to turn down. On the other hand, Arsenal have also been in contention for the league title in recent seasons, making them an equally attractive destination for the Spanish midfielder. The upcoming transfer window will be key in determining Zubimendi's final destination and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
