'World class', 'New Aguero' – Arsenal fans react as club reportedly within hours of huge deal
Arsenal fans have with mixed views to the news that Wenger is close to paying the £27m release clause for Argentinian winger Cristian Pavon.
Football.London have claimed that Arsenal could match his valuation within ‘the next few hours’ as Alexis Sanchez seemingly homes in a move to Man City.
Arsenal have been linked with the Boca Junior winger before but it was thought that Wenger was going to wait for the summer to make his move.
However, the imminent Sanchez deal could bring this forward.
Arsenal fans don’t know what to make of the news.
Some are bowled over, with one claiming he could develop into a world-class talent and another already proclaiming him as ‘the new Sergio Aguero’.
However, others aren’t so sure about the 21-year-old Argentina international, with concerns about his end product.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from Arsenal fans after hearing the news:
Get this Pavon and Lemar or Mahrez and I will be happy. We need two wide players if Sanchez leaves.

Diferent kind of players. Lamela has more vision, he is a kind of playmaker. Pavón is a second striker that can also play as a winger. He is good on one on ones, good pace and stamima BUT his end product is poor. He has evolved a lot the past year but he is not Arsenal level.

Pavon is easily the new Aguero….. surely? ????

Arsenal could really use another goalscorer if Alexis and Theo were to leave in January. Bringing in Pavon *and* Fekir would probably be excellent business, Pavon might be risky due to his (apparent) lack of scoring prowess. #afc

For the next 22 days no doubt we are gonna be told every day that Arsenal are about to sign Christian Pavón from Boca Juniors then sign a AFrican Cf from Ligue 2 for £150,000 ????????????????????????????????????????????????

Seen a few videos of this Christian Pavon from Boca Juniors. Looks to be a very sharp player, who could really develop into a world class talent. @moleyfootball mentioned a £25-35m quote from Boca, could be a very interesting addition. #AFC
