Arsenal are one of six clubs considering a move for Bologna midfielder Erick Pulgar, according to reports in Italy.
The Chilean international is also interesting the likes of Sevilla, Roma, Napoli, Inter and AC Milan.
Pulgar is currently playing for Chile at the Copa America where he has played every single minute of the tournament, including scoring against Japan in the first group match.
The 25-year-old’s success at international level comes off the back of an excellent season for his club where he scored six goals and made three assists in 30 appearances.
Pulgar reportedly has a release clause of just €12m (£10.7m) which has likely attracted the Gunners’ interest.
The Chilean’s agent is said to be arriving in Italy in the next few days in order to hold talks with interested club. Whether Arsenal will be involved, it remains to be seen. The London club are currently trying to negotiate a deal for Wilfried Zaha but their first offer was rejected.
