Arsenal are keen on signing PSV Eindhoven and Mexico World Cup star Hirving Lozano according to Mexican publication Publimetro.
The 22-year-old only moved to the Dutch club a year ago but had a stunning season, scoring 17 goals and assisting eight in 29 games.
He came to global prominence in Mexico’s first World Cup game where he scored the decisive goal in a famous 1-0 against Germany.
The tricky winger averaged 3.5 successful dribbles, 3.5 fouls won, and 3.3 shots per game in Mexico’s four World Cup games, and he also registered an assist.
Lozano, known as “Chucky” in Mexico, is valued at £22.5million on Transfermarkt but it is highly likely his value will rocket after impressing on the biggest of stages.

Definitely, I prefer him to all other wingers we are after. He’s bold and knows when to dribble and pass. And he’s young and coming.

We better move from this “intent” stage quick to “arsenal are in advance negotiations” with Lozano and Club.
The Butterflies in my stomach are almost overwhelming.
