Arsenal will have to spend big to sign PSV Eindhoven forward Hirving Lozano, claims ESPN via the Daily Cannon.
The striker is being mooted as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
The Mexican has lit up the Dutch League, scoring six goals in his first six games of the season and it will interest you to note that the forward only joined the Dutch side in the summer from Mexican side Pachuca.
His record in Mexico, wasn’t to impressive, boasting a record of 43 goals in 149 appearances, which may give us a clue as why Arsenal refused to rival PSV for his signature in the summer.
His swift adaptation to life in Europe has now forced Arsenal to consider making a concrete move for him.
With the future of Sanchez in doubt, it’s been reported that Lozano could come in as a replacement due to his ability to play in both flanks and down the middle like the Chilean.
However, we would have to pay the full £30m release clause which was inserted in the contract he signed with the Eredivisie side in the summer.
I am sure Wenger would be cautious about paying that much for the winger. Even though he has settled in well since moving to Europe, it would be too much of a risk to spend big on a player who hasn’t played a full season in the continent.
