Arsenal should face little competition for Hirving Lozano if they’re serious about having him replace Alexis Sanchez, with Liverpool’s spending likely to rule them out of signing another player.
Reports had indicated that Liverpool wanted Lozano to replace Philippe Coutinho, who continues to be linked with a move to Barcelona.
Should the Brazilian leave for Spain, Liverpool would certainly have the funds for a big signing. However, as it is, the Merseysiders have spent a significant part of their budget already.
That could leave them short of funds to sign Lozano as well.
If Arsenal are serious about signing the 22-year-old as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, they could find themselves relatively unchallenged. In which case, they’d be able to negotiate a deal with PSV without other clubs threatening to increase the asking price.
Lozano has been in stellar form for PSV this season.
Since joining from Pachuca in the summer, he’s scored 11 goals in 16 Eredivisie appearances. He wouldn’t be a bad acquisition if Alexis moved in next month or next summer.
