PSV will apparently refuse to sell winger Hirving Lozano to Arsenal in January unless his minimum fee release clause is met.
The Mexican international has hit the ground running in Holland since making the switch from Pachuca this summer, scoring six in his opening six matches, including becoming the first ever player to score in his first three PSV league outings.
Chief scout Steve Rowley is already keeping tabs on the 20 year-old as he makes waves in Holland, and is said to have recommended the winger, and a £20 Million bid was said to be a possibility.
Latest reports claim that the Dutch league leaders will refuse to sell unless his £30 Million release clause is met.
Lozano is claimed to be lined up as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who currently looks set to leave Arsenal before next season. There is talk that he could be sold this January, but as on Deadline Day, it is believed that he will only be granted his exit should a replacement be signed in the process.
The Chilean was believed to have agreed terms with Manchester City back in August, only for Arsenal to have to backtrack on their decision following Thomas Lemar opting to remain in Monaco for the season.
Lemar may no longer be the man lined up to replace the Chilean forward, and after only three months in Europe Lozano may also not be the man, but I will be keeping tabs on the young impressive forward for PSV just in case…
Could Lozano be a long-term replacement for Alexis? Would the Gunners spend the £30 Million asking price to land him in January?
