Arsenal are discussing a move to sign Cristian Pavon.
The reports in England suggested that Arsenal are in advanced talks to bring Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon.
The Argentina international joined Boca Juniors from Talleres de Córdoba for a fee in the region of 3.45 million euros in July 2014. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
Pavon has played 96 times for Boca Juniors since signing from Talleres de Córdoba, scoring 26 goals and creating 29 assists.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Argentina.
As a member of Argentina national football team, Pavon won 11 caps.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs. Pavon’s versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
Unai Emery has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
According to The Sun, “Arsenal want Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon — but he will cost £40million. The Gunners have the 22-year-old Argentine in their sights for the New Year and contact has already been made with his club. However, Boca have quoted a sky-high fee for Pavon, who has been dogged by hamstring trouble which handicapped him in the Copa Libertadores final. Emirates boss Unai Emery is a big fan and wants Pavon to give his attack even more edge. He can play in the Arsenal system and is faster than most players in the Spaniard’s squad.”
