Fabrizio Romano: “Pavard Emerges as a Transfer Prospect to Monitor as Window Nears Closure for Arsenal”

Fabrizio Romano suggests that Benjamin Pavard could become a notable target in the concluding phases of the transfer window. According to Romano, the French player is inclined to depart from Bayern Munich promptly, sparking interest from multiple clubs vying for his signature.

Romano further reveals that Inter Milan has prioritized Pavard as their prime transfer aspiration. With an offer anticipated to materialize soon. While Manchester United was previously seen as the frontrunners for Pavard’s acquisition. Romano asserts that progress has slowed due to the absence of Harry Maguire’s potential departure.

Arsenal and their ambitions

In a recent development, Harry Maguire’s anticipated transfer to West Ham United has fallen through this week, indicating his likely continuation at Old Trafford. This turn of events effectively closes the door on Manchester United’s pursuit of Benjamin Pavard. Potentially creating an opportunity for another club to seize, notably Arsenal.

According to Romano, Arsenal is now potentially in the position to make a move for Pavard, as they contemplate bolstering their defensive lineup following Jurrien Timber’s injury setback.

“Considering Timber’s eventual return to action, Arsenal’s preference would likely lean towards avoiding significant expenditures on another defender. Therefore, any potential agreement would need to offer favorable value, making Pavard a plausible candidate.

Pavard, whose Bayern contract is in its final year, has communicated his lack of interest in pursuing an extension.”

“This situation could entice Bayern to consider selling Pavard before he departs on a free transfer in a year’s time. Recognized as ‘world-class’ by Niko Kovac, Pavard possesses versatility that aligns with Mikel Arteta’s preferences, being adept in both right-back and center-back roles.

A parallel scenario unfolded with Timber, whom Arteta deployed at left-back despite prior positions. A similar strategy might be applicable to Pavard. Over the past years, the 27-year-old has established himself as a dependable asset for Bayern, making him a logical fit for Arsenal – contingent on their willingness to invest, especially following Timber’s injury.”
