Arsenal Interested In Argentina World Cup Star?
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reportedly interested in a highly-rated Argentina international, who featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
According to Daily Mirror, the north London club would like to add 22-year-old Boca Juniors star, Cristian Pavon to their squad for the upcoming season.
The English side has already landed three new signing this season, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos have all joined the club in the last few weeks.
Earlier this year, Pavon saw his Argentine club reject an initial bid of £26.5 million (R477 million) for him from the Emirates side, but rumours suggest that the interest in him has not disappeared.
The player’s agent Fernando Hidalgo has come out and said there has been no official offer from Arsenal and insisted that his client is only focused on his future at Boca.
"There is still nothing official from Arsenal," he told Radio La Red.
"Pavon informed Boca’s hierarchy about his desire to stay and play in the Copa Libertadores."
The right-wing made 32 appearances for Boca last season, scoring seven goals and assisting in a further 19 strikes.
