Arsenal are stepping up their pursuit of Udinese right-back Nahuel Molina, according to TuttoUdinese.it.
The Italian website reports that the Gunners “pushes” to secure the signature of the Argentinian international, who is expected to be available for around €25m (£21m) this summer.
However, while Mikel Arteta’s side are keen to include Pablo Mari as part of the deal, after a successful loan spell with Udinese, the Serie A side would prefer to negotiate the two transfers separately.
Whether that will cause a delay to a move being finalised, we shall have to wait and see. Arsenal may not want to be locked in negotiations for too long, though, with TuttoUdinese claiming there is “competition” from three other teams.
Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and Juventus are all reportedly keeping tabs on Molina so the Gunners will be keen to get an agreement with Udinese on signing the 24-year-old as soon as possible.
