Arsenal plan to sign Boca Juniors starlet Cristian Pavon in the summer after identifying him as a long-term replacement for Alexis Sanchez, reports The Independent.
The Gunners are resigned to losing Sanchez in one of the next two transfer windows but are already putting plans in place to sufficiently replace the Chile international.
Arsene Wenger has already ruled out a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but it has now emerged that Arsenal’s real target plays for Boca.
The Argentinean giants are reportedly willing to part ways with Pavon but only if the bidding starts in excess of £20m and accounts for any future success the 21-year-old enjoys in his career.
