Arsenal have made a big-money offer to secure services one of La Liga’s most promising forward, however, face significant competition from fellow Premier League side Liverpool, according to reports.
The Merseyside Reds are also reportedly looking at the young forward as a potential option, though, like the Gunners, are reluctant to go to Villarreal’s £50m valuation.
The North Londo ngiants have already had a strong summer window, recruiting Man City pair Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko as well as Portuguese playmaker Fabio Vieira, while Liverpool have signed Fabio Carvalho from Fulham, Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen and Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta is also keen to secure the services of a new forward to provide cover and competition with Bukayo Saka on the right wing in particular and the team briefly pursued a deal for Brazilian forward, Raphinha – though he only wanted to join Barcelona.
The Gunners have remained attentive to the possibility of bringing in a new forward who can play across the frontline and appear to have landed on Villarreal’s winger Yeremi Pino.
According to Radio Villarreal, The Yellow Submarine are giving serious consideration to cashing in on the 19-year-old winger.
The teenager is arguably Villarreal’s brightest young talent and both Liverpool and Arsenal are keen on to sign him.
