Boca Juniors president: 'No Arsenal bids for Cristian Pavon'

Soon after Pavon's return to the club though, the 21-year-old broke through into the first-team setup at Boca Juniors and became a force to be reckoned within the continent.

Yet even if Arsenal do activate Pavon's release clause, the Argentina worldwide is concerned a move may hinder his Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup hopes and would need assurances from coach Jorge Sampaoli, per The Independent's Ed Malyon. Pavon signed an extension at Boca Juniors mid-2017 and still has a considerable time left on his new deal. A return of 3 goals and 6 assists in 12 games also bodes well for the player.

Arsenal's interest in the Argentinean forward was revealed by The Independent earlier this week, with Pavón eyed as a long-term replacement for Alexis Sanchez due to their similar playing styles.

The 22-year-old has made just three Premier League starts this season, one of which came against West Brom where he was penalised for a handball that led to a late Albion equaliser.

Adding a striker remains Arsenal's top priority this winter and Arsene Wenger will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.

According to the Independent, rather than looking to sign Pavon in January, Arsenal are considering a summer deal.

The president of Argentine side Boca Juniors has addressed speculation that one of their star players is set for a move to Arsenal.

When asked about the rumours, Boca president Daniel Angelici stated: "For the moment, we have not received any proposal, formally or informally".

"But I know very well what I said to Cristian when we renewed his contract".

Reports emerged on Tuesday suggesting that the Gunners were close to confirming the arrival of Pavon, who is seen as a like-for-like replacement for Alexis Sanchez. I am not going to cut off his career, but we made him a nice contract so that he would be comfortable.
