Antonio Valencia Arsenal transfer news

Arsenal are one of a number of clubs interested in Manchester United right-back Antonio Valencia.

The 33-year-old Ecuador international looks set to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires this summer and his father – who also acts as his agent – says there has been interest from clubs both in England and overseas.

“He definitely will not continue in Manchester,” Luis Valencia told El Universo.

“He wants to choose the best option, but above all he wants to sign a contract for two years. Not just for the money, but for peace and hopefully, he told me, to be hired by a team that will fight important things.

“He wants a change in the air and the club is not going to renew him either. In life everything comes to an end,”

When asked about his son’s next move, the agent added: “Arsenal, West Ham, Inter Milan and one club from China are options, but in football everything is changing.”

Valencia is already free to speak to overseas clubs.
