Arsenal are said to hold a ‘strong interest’ in signing Villarreal’s 19yo winger, Yeremy Pino.

Villarreal are aware of Arsenal’s interest and, a few days ago, were braced for a big offer for the teenager who is currently valued at around £36m.

Speaking at Villarreal’s press conference ahead of the start of the new La Liga season, Emery said, “If an offer arrives for players like Yeremy Pino, then he will have to leave.

“We have a responsibility with the club. It is what it is.”

Liverpool are also said to be interested but the Daily Mail report that Arsenal are the first club to make a move.

Villarreal are believed to have a sweet spot around €45m/£38m that would get them to the table for serious discussions.

Pino has played 77 times already for the Spaniards, scoring 14 and assisting five. He is seen as one of the hottest young players in La Liga.
