Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are all reported to be interested in the 21-year-old.

For the record Pavon is under contract until 2022. As a member of Argentina national football team, Cristian Pavon won two caps.

Yet even if Arsenal do activate Pavon's release clause, the Argentina global is concerned a move may hinder his Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup hopes and would need assurances from coach Jorge Sampaoli, per The Independent's Ed Malyon.

However, when asked about the rumours, Boca president Daniel Angelici stated: 'For the moment, we have not received any proposal, formally or informally.

Losing the 29-year-old, either for a below-market-value fee this month of for nothing when his contract expires at the end of the season, will be a huge blow for the Gunners, with adequate replacements in short supply.

Boca Juniors are prepared to stand in the way of Arsenal's attempts to sign winger Cristian Pavon but admit they are yet to receive any approach for the Argentina global.

"But I know very well what I said to Cristian when we renewed his contract".

Pavon's agent is also unaware of Arsenal having any genuine interest in the wideman, though a representative from England has informed him The Emirates Stadium club are tracking his client.

Arsene Wenger has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

However, it looks like Wenger may have a surprise target in mind as recent reports have suggested the boss has lined-up Boca Juniors attacker Cristian Pavon as the man he wants to replace Sanchez. However, he did concede the possibility that the player could leave the club.

Pavon scored nine goals in 30 league appearances for Boca last term and has three in 12 games this term.

Cristian Pavon had been linked with a £27million switch to the Gunners, who are reportedly looking for a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

Meanwhile, Arsenal remain interested in West Brom's Jonny Evans and have made an offer including Mathieu Debuchy, per David Woods at the Daily Star.
