'It could well move quickly': Journalist says Arsenal may be lining up a truly 'amazing' signing

Arsenal have been heavily linked with Villarreal’s Yeremy Pino in recent days.

El Periodico Mediterraneo recently claimed that the Gunners are the club most interested in the 19-year-old.

Meanwhile, AS reported that Villarreal would be likely to accept any bid in the region of €40-50m (£33-42m).

And Marca suggested that Arsenal and Liverpool were leading the race for Pino.

However, a senior winger continues to elude Arsenal, who failed with an attempt to sign Raphinha.

The Gunners were also linked with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Serge Gnabry and Moussa Diaby.

Now, with just a few weeks remaining of the transfer window, Arsenal may have set their sights on one of Spain’s top talents.

“A really good player”

According to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, the Pino to Arsenal speculation has some serious substance.

Speaking on The Done Deal Show, Jacobs said: “Arsenal fans have been talking about mystery wingers all summer, and Yeremy Pino is fantastic by the way. A really good player.

“I think this one is one to watch. First of all he has a release clause. If Arsenal do business below that clause they’ll have pulled off a fantastic signing.

The release clause is over £65m and the feeling is that Arsenal’s interest is in the mid-30s. So it would be a fantastic bit of business and ambitious as well.

“I’ve seen reports that Arsenal will have an offer accepted. They believe in Spain that a bid of half of his release clause could be accepted because Villarreal need the money.

“From what I understand, this does genuinely have a bit more substance to it.

“I made an enquiry to the player’s agent 24 hours ago to find out if there was a desire to move and I got quite a coy response.

“It may come down to whether a young 19-year-old thinks it’s the right time to make move to Arsenal with a big tag over him.

“I would classify this one as one to watch. It could well move quickly and it does have something to it based on talking sources close to the player coupled with the fact that Villarreal need to find money from somewhere.”
