Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Orlando City forward Facundo Torres. The Uruguayan forward would also be interested in a move.
However, it will be a difficult move to complete for the Gunners in the January transfer window. The MLS side will demand a premium fee for their star player.
ARSENAL AND FACUNDO TORRES TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are interested in signing Orlando City forward Facundo Torres. The report also claims that Gunners have held talks with his agent. However, they are yet to put in a bid for him. The Gunners have found success in the MLS with the signing of Matt Turner. Hence, the Premier League giants are ready to explore the league again.
However, they are also aware that teams will ask for a premium price for their star players. Although, the Gunners will have the financial muscle to meet the demands. However, the player has to show a lot of potential for the long term. Orlando City signed him for 7.75 million last season on a four-year contract. Hence, the MLS side have the advantage over the transfer value of the player.
MIKEL ARTETA WANTS TO SIGN A RIGHT-WINGER IN JANUARY
The report also claims that the Gunners want to sign a right-winger in the January transfer window. This is because they have only Bukayo Saka as the main option. Reiss Nelson and Marquinhos are scoring goals this season. However, they are yet to prove that they can provide goals in the big games. Hence, Mikel Arteta is hoping that Arsenal owners provide him with funds in January.
The Gunners are also getting linked with moves for Wolves winger Pedro Neto. They are also closely keeping an eye on the situation of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk. Hence, Facundo Torres is not the only option for Mikel Arteta. The recruitment team needs to keep on searching for the right deal that fits the budget for the January transfer window.
Arsenal have already spent a large amount of money on transfers in the summer transfer window. Hence, they will have to be careful to avoid any problems with the FFP. However, one thing is certain that the Gunners will continue their process to find talent in South America and USA.
