Premier League giants Arsenal are not done yet with their transfer plans as they are reportedly set to capture Argentina playmaker Cristian Pavon, who plays for Boca Juniors in his homeland.
Having signed a goalkeeper and two defenders, the midfield position seems to be the next point of call for Unai Emery and he is doing everything to bolster his squad at the middle of the pitch before the start of the coming season.
According to reports, the former Sevilla and Paris St-German manager isn’t too comfortable with the fact that Mesut Ozil is the only experience player in that role.
Alex Iwobi is another player who could be drafted into the playmaking role but the Nigerian hasn’t been consistent over the years.
It was reported that Boca junior rejected Arsenal’s initial offer— which is said to be at the range of £30m — for the 22-year-old versatile midfielder, that’s according to AS.
Unai Emery has reportedly made an improved offer for the youngster, this time, the club have tabled a €50m deal for his signature.
Pavon played all the matches played by the South American country at the ongoing world cup but he couldn’t prevent his team from losing 4-3 to the French team, who looked superior in their quarterfinal match last week.
Pavon played 32 matches for Boca junior last season, scoring seven goals and 23 assists in all competitions.
