LAZY FAN EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal interested in World Cup star

Hirving Lozano had a breakout performance at this year’s World Cup, starring for Mexico before they were knocked out by an all-star Brazil side 2-0 in the Last 16.

In that tournament, explosive winger Lozano established himself as one of the world’s most exciting young players, scoring against Germany and starring against South Korea and, at just 22 years of age, it is no surprise that Lozano is in high demand off the back of his World Cup performances.

Currently at PSV Eindhoven, Lozano scored 19 goals in his first season in Dutch football after a move from hometown club Pachuca. As a winger with genuine pace and an eye for goal it is no surprise that he is on the radar of many of the world’s biggest clubs and one of those is Arsenal.

Hirving Lozano is a transfer target for Arsenal

As previously reported exclusively by Lazy Fan Sports, Manchester United are also interested in the Mexican but, unlike United, the Gunners’ move does not hinge on the sale of another player and they will be able to move for him as soon as they want.

After losing Alexis Sanchez to United last January, Arsenal have been on the lookout for a replacement left-winger and Lozano certainly fits the bill. Alex Iwobi is their only out-and-out winger with genuine pace and, as Lozano has proved at the World Cup, he has the pace and ability to terrorise top quality defenders.

Lozano could be Arsenal’s replacement for Alexis Sanchez

Unlike at United where he would have to play second fiddle to the aforementioned Sanchez, Lozano would likely be a regular starter at the Emirates and that could be a key bargaining chip for new Gunners boss Unai Emery who is keen to bring the good times back to Arsenal after the end of Arsene Wenger’s 22-year reign.

PSV are expected to be willing to let Lozano go for “a reasonable fee in today’s market” but it is expected that other clubs will be interested thanks to his World Cup showing.
