Arsenal are still in the hunt for Argentina star Cristian Pavon and have moved to open talks with Boca Juniors over a potential move, according to reports.
Raul Sanllehi has already held talks with Boca Juniors over the signing of Cristian Pavon for Arsenal in January.
Football.London claims there is ‘strong interest’ in the 22-year-old winger, and it’s Sanllehi leading the charge to sign him, rather than the head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.
The 22-year-old has caught the attention of a host of European clubs after a string of impressive performances, which resulted in a call-up to the national team for the Russia World Cup.
While Boca are keen to hold on to their prized asset, the club have recently confirmed the player does hold a release clause.
The forward who scored 6 and conceded 11 in 2017/18 ultimately penned a new contract with Boca, increasing his buyout clause to £37.5m in the process.
Club president Daniel Angelici recently outlined the details surrounding Pavon’s position.
‘Pavon stays, signed for four more years. The clause is 50 million euros, which was what we wanted to be calm. We wanted to sell it when we understood that it was the necessary moment (sic),’ Angelici stated, as report TeamTalk.
