Agent confirms Arsenal yet to make concrete offer for Argentinian forward

  Agent confirms Arsenal yet to make concrete offer for Argentinian forward The agent of Cristian Pavon has confirmed that Arsenal are yet to bid for the player, despite being heavily linked with the Argentinian international. According to a report from the Mirror, as cited on Sky Sports, the Gunners are yet to make a move the player. Speaking to Radio La Red, Fernando Hidalgo explained the player’s situation. “There is still nothing official from Arsenal. Pavon informed Boca’s hierarchy about his desire to stay and play in the Copa Libertadores.” Pavon has been linked with big moves away from Boca Juniors in recent months and his surprise call-up to the Argentina World Cup squad has intensified rumours about his future. The player remains under contract with Boca until 2022, but he is likely to take the next step of his career soon. Arsenal have been long-term admirers of the player and previous reports have suggested a bid was imminent. Unai Emery is still reportedly hoping to strengthen in the final third this summer and Pavon could be the man to fit the bill.

Arsenal have joined Tottenham and Manchester United in expressing an interest in Ante Rebic, but the Croatian is hoping to join Bayern this summer.

As per a report from Sport Bild, interest is mounting in the player, but new Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac is ready to move for the forward.

It is believed that any deal for Rebic would cost around €50 million but it is yet to be seen how willing Bayern would be to pay that.

Rebic impressed at Frankfurt last season under Kovac and has also gone on to star at the World Cup for Croatia in Russia.

The two also worked together during Kovac’s time in charge of the Croatian national team.

Rebic scored a brilliantly-taken volley to help Croatia ease past Argentina in the group stages.

Manchester United to rival Arsenal for Croatian forward .
Manchester United are set to rival Arsenal to the signing of striker Ante Rebic this summer. According to The Mirror, United are plotting a swoop for the forward, who has been linked with a move to The Emirates. The forward impressed for Croatia at the World Cup in Russia earlier this month, attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world. Rebic currently plays for Eintracht Frankfurt at club level in the Bundesliga, with no mention of how much they would demand as a fee. Croatia finished runners-up in the World Cup after they lost 4-2 to France in their first ever final. The 24-year-old has scored two goals in 22 appearances for Croatia, since making his debut for the national team in 2013. Rebic is able to operate anywhere across the frontline, lining up out wide for Croatia at times. There is no suggestion of how much Frankfurt would demand for the striker.
