EXCLUSIVE: Agent Cicchetti says Nastic 'right club for Arsenal defender Pleguezuelo'

Italian agent Gianfranco Cicchetti says Arsenal defender Julio Pleguezuelo is rebuilding his career at Nastic in Spain.

Cicchetti has several players at Nastic and boasts close ties with the Segunda Division outfit.

Former Barcelona defender Pleguezuelo, 21, joined Nastic on-loan in January to the end of this season and Cicchetti has already seen the youngster in action.

"Pleguezuelo is a very interesting young defender," Cicchetti told Tribalfootball.com.

"Arsenal also sent him to Real Mallorca, but he never had a chance in the Premier League. At Nastic he has had the opportunity to play with continuity and resume his growth process.

"He is talented, but in order to play for Arsenal another step will be required."
