Arsenal and Aston Villa are said to be planning a ‘very big offer’ for Atletico Madrid star and World Cup-winning fullback Nahuel Molina come 2024.

Aston Villa may be turning their full attention to another member of Argentina’s World Cup-winning backline after having strong talks with Marcos Acuna in the final weeks of the summer window.

Nahuel Molina, the highly active right-back, had a fantastic 2022/23 season for both his club and country. Because of his impressive performance, Atletico Madrid is thinking about extending his contract, even though it still has four years remaining, despite interest from Italian and English clubs.

Now, here is some news about Nahuel Molina: He might sign a new contract to stay at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2029. But there are other teams like Aston Villa, Arsenal, Manchester City, and now Juventus, who are interested and might make big offers next year.

Arsenal and Aston Villa are Interested in Nahuel Molina

In his first season under Diego Simeone, Molina scored 4 goals. He assisted on 4 more. The 25-year-old would provide Unai Emery with some much-needed Matty Cash competition at Aston Villa.

Arsenal, on the other hand, lacks a right-sided full-back by natural birth. Although Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, and Jurrien Timber, all three of whom shone in Japan’s 4-1 thrashing of Germany, are all capable of thriving in a wider role.

It was reported that Arsenal was interested in Molina before he left Udinese for Atletico Madrid in 2022. According to Marca, the Gunners even made a bid. However, Atletico Madrid won the race, paying £14 million and sending Nahuel Perez to Udinese as part of the deal.

But there is a catch. Atletico Madrid could face a problem if Arsenal decides to show interest again soon because there’s a release clause in Molina’s contract for just £25 million.

A Good Bargain of £25 Million

Molina once mentioned to Tuttosport that he admires attacking full-backs like Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea’s Reece James, and Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker. His admiration for these talented full-backs is reflected in his own bold style of play on the field.

We cannot be sure who will win if Arsenal and Aston Villa want to get Nahuel Molina for £25 million. It depends on how they work out the deal, what Molina wants, and what the teams decide. We will only find out when everything is finished, and we see how good Molina plays for his new team.
