English Premier League side Arsenal have begun negotiations over a £40million move to bring Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon to the club as new manager Unai Emery looks to strengthen his squad.

The 22-year-old who has been struggling with injuries this season was impressive for Argentina in the 2018 World Cup.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants to add an extra dimension to his attack and feels the winger can bring that. However, Arsenal are not the only club interested in signing the Argentine as Fulham are reportedly keen on securing his services this January, according to Daily Mail.

Having begun his senior career with hometown club Talleres de Cordoba before joining South American Giants Boca in 2014 Pavon has racked up 72 league appearances and 19 goals in his time at the club.

Arsenal will face Southampton in this weekend’s Premier League fixture.
