Arsenal are reportedly looking to take advantage of Leeds United’s failed attempts to get promoted to the Premier League by moving on one of their top targets.

Leeds United had, reportedly, been expecting to sign Nahitan Nández had they made it to the promised land of the Premier League. Sadly for them, it just wasn’t to be, leaving Nández looking for a new home.

According to a report from TNT that was picked up by the Daily Star Nández is one of three players from South America Arsenal are looking at.

Nández is a 23-year-old central midfielder who plays for Boca Juniors and is under contract until next season with a current market value of around £11m. One Boca fan described him as ‘an absolute workhorse, a true box-to-box player’ and he has been described as being in the Torreira mould.

Arsenal very rarely went near the South American market when Arsene Wenger was at the club but they seem more than willing to do that with Unai Emery in charge of the team and Raul Sanllehi at the helm.
