Arsenal are looking to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano in the January transfer window as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who seems increasingly likely to leave the club.
Lozano has caught the eye this season having already scored 9 goals in the Eredivisie, having only joined the club in the summer from Pachuca for £7.04 million.
However, the 22-year-old, who already has 20 caps for Mexico, is likely to cost £30 million, as PSV’s bosses will be unlikely to allow one of their rising stars to leave for less than the release clause, according to a report by Football.London.
Lozano has previously been watched by Arsenal scouts, and is thought to also be on Manchester United’s radar. But if he keeps his early season form up, other clubs around Europe are likely to be interested in signing him.
Sanchez is known to want to leave Arsenal, with Manchester City thought a likely destination. A cut-price move could happen in January as the Gunners would like to get some money for the player, rather than see him move for nothing once his contract expires in June.
