Arsenal could be set to meet Cristian Pavon’s release clause within ‘the next few hours’ as they prepare for life without Alexis Sanchez.
Reports in Argentina claim that Arsene Wenger is ready to push through a deal for the winger, who currently plays for Boca Juniors.
Pavon has been linked with Arsenal in recent weeks but initial reports have suggested that Wenger may wait until the summer before trying to get a deal done – with Boca keen to keep hold of the attacker for their Copa Libertadores campaign.
But the Argentina media now say he has had a change of heart and could be willing to pay the 21-year-old’s £27 million release clause, with Alexis Sanchez closing in on a move to Manchester City.
A report by TyC Sports claims that Wenger is prepared to get the deal done now as he is worried that Pavon’s value may soar if he performs well at the World Cup in the summer.
