New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has made an approach for PSV winger Hirving Lozano after his impressive World Cup performances, according to Transfer Market Web, via TalkSport.
The report says that the Gunners have approached the Mexican after a World Cup where he announced himself, especially with the definitive contribution in his country’s victory over world champions Germany in their opening game of the tournament.
That came on the back of a mightily impressive 19-goal season in Dutch football, to prove that he is no flash in the pan.
That reliability in front of goal has reportedly interested Arsenal and made Emery consider him as someone who could be a part of his Emirates revolution.

Arsenal have lost Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in wide areas within the last year, and the likes of Alex Iwobi have been unable to step up and fill the breach.
Emery will need genuine pace and width at times in his maiden season in English football and flying wideman Lozano fits the bill perfectly.
He is on another level to Iwobi, not least in terms of productivity in front of goal and Emery must make sure he does all he can to land him after his World Cup heroics brought him to wider attention.
