Arsenal will reportedly push ahead with plans to sign Cristian Pavon from Boca Juniors once the January transfer window opens for business.
Former Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis is believed to have lined up the 22-year-old before stepping down from his backroom role to take up an identical position at AC Milan in September.
Pavon remains on Arsenal's radar, however, with The Sun reporting that contact has already been made with Boca following the conclusion of the Argentine Primera season.
The North London outfit are said to have been quoted an inflated fee of £40m for the Argentina international, though, as there is interest in the player from other clubs, including English top-flight strugglers Fulham.
Unai Emery wants Pavon to be brought to the club in January to give his attack even more edge, it is claimed, with the Boca academy product being used right across the forward line by Boca this season.
