Arsenal leading the race for 18-year-old Villarreal star

Arsenal is interested in a move for Villarreal youngster, Yéremi Pino, according to reports.

The 18-year-old attacker is the latest Spanish youngster turning heads around Europe and it is only a matter of time before he joins a top club.

Todofichajes says several clubs are interested in a move for him as he makes significant progress with Villarreal.

The report says Arsenal has been monitoring him for some time now and Mikel Arteta’s insistence on having him in his squad means he is a priority target for the Gunners.

Villarreal wants to keep him for the long-term and are looking to hand him a new contract soon.

However, his current deal expires in 2024 and has a release clause of just 30m euros, which is making them panic.

Arsenal paid that much for Martin Odegaard in the last transfer window and they could splash the cash for Pino if they determine that the young Spaniard is worth that much.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid are three other clubs who also have interest in him and that means the Gunners have their work cut out in convincing him to make the move away from Spain.

The youngster has three assists and a goal from five La Liga matches this season and he has also played twice in the Champions League.

    Does anybody seriously believe Arteta will be given as much as a single penny more to spend? After the embarrassment of being dominated yesterday by a team who had not a single player who would have got into our side, let alone squad, why would the board seriously give this novice anything?
    And for all those delusional posters on this site, including the usual suspects of AdPat, Grandad, and Jon (change my mind on managers more than my underpants) Fox, who just cannot admit this clown is not capable of being manager of this football club, you just continue to embarrass yourselves. You were told last week after the Spuds win what would happen at Brighton. Yet some just cannot admit to what is do glaringly obvious to anyone with even an ounce of football knowledge. Arteta is not, never has been, and never will be a coach with the ability required at this club. You are totally delusional if you believe otherwise.

      You are an ignorant man.

        HaHa- and you are left with nothing but embarrassment PAL. Just look at what is happening in front of you, and stop believing yourself to be so much above everyone else with your opinions that prove more and more worthless as the weeks go by

      So much hate in you Phil. Not sure why everything needs to be a fight. It is possible to disagree without being so combative.
