BBC Official: Arsenal to officially announce the signing Cristian Pavon

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Premier League club, Arsenal have reportedly held talks with Boca Juniors over a possible move for winger Cristian Pavon after this summer’s World Cup.

New manager Unai Emery is looking for reinforcements to his squad during the summer transfer window as he looks to take the club back into the top four of the Premier League next season.

Speulations in Argentina suggest that he has identified Pavon as a possible target, with the 22-year-old having established himself as one of the brightest prosArseArspects in Argentine football in recent years.

The 22-year-old winger has won five caps for the national team since his debut last year and was included in Jorge Sampaoli’s squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

The Argentine club, however, are unwilling to sanction any sale before or during the tournament in the hope that good performances from Pavon could allow them to up their asking price.

Boca Juniors are reportedly already looking for a replacement in case Arsenal’s interest extends further.

The North Londoners could face competition for Pavon’s signature from London rivals Chelsea, though, with the Blues having also reportedly held initial talks with the player.
