Report: Club willing to sell their ‘magnificent’ player to Arsenal for £38m, bid now expected imminently

Arsenal are expected to bid for Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino imminently, according to Goal.

The report says that the Spanish club have not yet had a formal offer from Arsenal, but expect one to arrive in the next few days, with other English clubs also interested.

Arsenal are said to be more interested in Pino than any other club, and he currently has a £68m release clause.

However, this latest report suggests that Villarreal are happy to negotiate with Arsenal, and could accept an offer of £38m.

This would be great news for Mikel Arteta’s side if they were able to buy Pino for so much less than his release clause but could have one possible drawback.

A valuation that low may alert other clubs who may not want Pino as much as Arsenal do, but might not be able to resist such a tempting price point.

Arsenal to make bid for Pino imminently

A right-winger by trade, the ‘magnificent’ Pino has played all across the front line for Villarreal and in his short career already made his international debut.

He came to prominence outside of Spain when he scored four goals, including a first-half perfect hat-trick, in a La Liga match against Espanyol last season.

Arteta is building a talented, young side at Arsenal and Pino would fit in well with his philosophy of bringing in players that still have the potential to develop.

Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko are the oldest outfield recruits this summer at 25 years old.

Pino would be relying on Arteta as the main Spanish connection if he were to join the club, with Hector Bellerin and Pablo Mari both widely expected to leave the club soon.
