Arsenal willing to meet Pavon release clause

Arsenal willing to meet Pavon release clause

Pavon has a £27m release clause in his contract at Boca, allowing Arsenal to go straight into negotiations with the player if they decide to meet the clause.

The Gunners want to sign Pavon as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, and Boca president Daniel Angelici was asked if the club have received an offer from Arsene Wenger's side.

The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Argentina.

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.

The Argentina global has earned a promising reputation in South America to attract interest from Premier League duo Liverpool FC and Manchester City, as well as Serie A champions Juventus.

Angelici insists Pavon has the "last word" on whether he leaves the club. "We always help him with his future, but I trust Pavon will be with us for 2018".

Arsenal fans don't know what to make of the news. "I received a call two days ago from an English agent to see if there was a possibility of the player moving as Arsenal are looking at him", Fernando Hidalgo told ¿Cómo te va?, according to Metro.

And while the release clause is present, Arsenal have submitted an enquiry to Boca Juniors in an attempt to figure out whether the Argentinian giants are willing to negotiate at a pedestal lower than the buyout clause.

Pavon has been suggested as a potential replacement at Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez with the Chilean strongly linked to move to Manchester City during the January transfer window.

"If it's true what this person was telling me then they should contact the club is what I said. Unless a club comes along and pays the €35m release clause, I don't think he will leave this year". "Surely they would have called or something, then I would have known about it by now".
