Boca Deny Arsenal Have Bid For Cristian Pavon

While, club president Angelici revealed that there had been no offers from anyone for the young Argentinian star, he also admitted that if the player's release clause is met, the final decision will be down to Pavon.

Yet even if Arsenal do activate Pavon's release clause, the Argentina global 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.

News comes from Argentina today saying the Gunners are interested in buying Boca Juniors forward Cristian Pavón.

Cristian Pavon has emerged as a surprise target for Arsenal in the winter transfer window.

Last season, his impressive return of nine goals and 10 assists helped the Azul y Oro become champions of Argentina. So far, in 12 games, the La Albiceleste attacker has directly contributed in 9 goals (3 goals and 6 assists).

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


Arsenal have submitted an enquiry for the Boca Juniors winger as the Gunners aim to prepare themselves for life after Alexis Sanchez, who is most likely to exit the club, with Manchester City being his preferred destination.

Alexis Sanchez could be replaced by Cristian PovanCan Pavon fill the Sanchez void?

Right-footed and often deployed on the right wing for Boca, Pavon can also play on the left side of the attack, cutting inside onto his stronger foot.

Arsenal are thought to be holding out for a fee in the region of £30m, which would cover the signing of Pavon.

"For the moment, we have not received any proposal, formally or informally", Angelici said.

However, Chambers only signed a new two-year contract extension in October, which suggests the club do still have faith in him to make the grade at the Emirates Stadium.
