Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of bringing in Cristian Pavon from Boca Juniors after agreeing to pay the attacker’s £27m release clause.
The 21-year-old earlier developed as the Gunners’ top target to replace Alexis Sanchez, who is set to leave for Manchester City before the end of the month.
The Gunners will use a considerable part of the expected £35m fee Sanchez’s transfer generates to sign Pavon and, as reported by to TyC Sports, an announcement could be made at some stage on Tuesday night.
Boca are believed to have been hoping to keep the Argentina international until the summer. However, Arsene Wenger has performed a part in bringing the moving striker by five months, as he is worried the footballer’s valuation will only increase with time.
