Alexis Sanchez seems to be moving closer to joining Manchester City with each passing minute.

Arsenal are looking set to sign Cristian Pavon from Argentinian side Boca Juniors – according to reports coming out of South America.

TyC Sports claim that the Gunners are more than happy to pay Pavon’s release clause which is estimated to be around £27 million and the Premier League outfit are going to place a bid within the next few hours.

The 21-year-old has made two appearances for Argentina and this season, he has scored three goals and provided six assists before the winter break for Boca. If Arsenal do manage to get Cristian Pavon then it will be a like-to-like substitution since the Argentine plays in the exact same position as Alexis Sanchez.
