FC Twente have confirmed the signing of Julio Pleguezuelo from Arsenal.
Pleguezelo is a defender, primarily a centre-back, who spent his youth career playing for four different clubs in Spain – Atletico Baleares, Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, before moving to north London in 2013. He spent the 2016/17 and 2017/18 on loan with Mallorca and Gimnastic, and rejoined the Gunners last summer. He made his first-team debut in the Arsenal shirt in the League Cup against Blackpool at the end of October last year. However, it seems he failed to prove his quality is at a level sufficient for Arsenal, and now he will be plying his trade in Netherlands.
Twente have returned to the Eredivisie following a season of second-tier football and are looking to bolster their squad for the challenges that await them now. Director of football Ted Van Leeuwen has revealed that the club had been scouting Pleguezuelo for a while, and they’re extremely happy that the 22-year-old has chosen them as the next step in his career.
