TOP STORY: Arsenal in for Boca star Pavon

Arsenal have entered the race to sign Boca Juniors star Cristian Pavon with the Mail claiming the Gunners have made enquiries to the Argentinian club about signing the 21-year-old this month.

Boca inserted a £27 million release clause in Pavon’s contract, which could also be triggered by Liverpool and Manchester City, while talks suggest the Londoners are facing up to the possibility of losing Alexis Sanchez this month.

Arsenal see Pavon as a replacement for the Chile international, who seems certain to be bound for City either this month or in the summer. Also followed by Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, Pavon has already broken into Jorge Sampaoli’s Albiceleste squad and should feature at this summer’s World Cup.


08.50 GMT: In Italy the Corriere dello Sport leads with news that Inter Milan want to sign Rafinha from Barcelona. It goes as far to say that negotiations are well underway and a loan deal is close.
