Cristian Pavón, 22, has won over the admiration of North London club Arsenal, after the English outfit are believed to have progressed in talks with his current Argentinian club Boca Juniors over a possible transfer to the Premier League this summer.
Reports in Argentina via Sportmole, have revealed that the winger has emerged as a primary target for Unai Emery, who took over the wheel of affairs in the club following the resignation of Arsene Wenger last month.
But the Gunners may face stiff competition for the player after it was reported that close rivals Chelsea are also interested in the winger.
The Córdoba native was listed in the Argentinian team ahead of the World Cup in Russia this year and has been regarded as one of the promising talents in Argentine football.
With five caps already for the Argentina senior team, it is understood that Boca will not budge in their sale of the player, unless after the World Cup. It is believed this strategy will allow the Argentina outfit to negotiate a better deal for the winger.
Arsenal are preparing for a major summer overhaul after changing their coach last month, and are already eyeing a number of prospects across Europe the likes of Real Madrid’s Isco and Lukas Klostermann.
Pavon is valued at £18.00m according to transfermarkt.
