Deal for Cristian Pavon is the wrong move by Arsenal

It’s been an ok start to the season for Gunners as Arsenal had two very tough opening games before stringing three wins together to push them back up the table. 

It was always going to be a hard season for the Gunners considering the introduction of a new manager, a raft of structural changes, and five new players joining the club. As he’ll probably be more than aware of now, Emery has a very tough job on his hands but so far, the former PSG boss hasn’t done too badly.

Refreshingly for the fans, the four new players that have featured so far, have all played well. Despite not splashing too much cash, the Gunners strengthened in key areas, specifically the backline. One area Arsenal didn’t strengthen over the summer was on the wing and according to the Daily Mail, they are keen to sign Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon.

The Breakdown

The 22-year-old winger caught the eye last year as he scored six goals and created a further 13 for the Argentinian side. Such were his impressive performances that he was called up to the national squad for the World Cup and despite a fairly poor showing from the team, Pavon was one of the few players to actually play anywhere near to his level.

A quick and skilful player, Pavon would certainly add some dynamism to Arsenal but the reported £44 million release-clause, seems slightly steep. In an era where it looks like the Gunners will concentrate on scouting and finding reasonably prized gems under Sven Mislintat, splashing out £44 million on Pavon is a deal they should avoid.

What do you think Arsenal fans?
