Arsenal are set to have a €40million bid for Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino accepted, despite bidding less than half of his release clause, according to reports.

Mikel Arteta’s side have launched an ambitious offer for the 19-year-old, with the Spain international having a release clause of €79.7m.

Pino is one of the LaLiga’s most exciting prospects and Liverpool were also interested in the youngster, but Arsenal are the first club to make a move.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Villarreal are likely to accept Arsenal’s lower offer, at a value of less than half Pino’s release clause, in order to solve ‘economic problems’ at the club.

The Gunners are keen to add another attacking asset to provide further cover and competition, especially after missing out on a deal for Raphinha following a brief pursuit of the Barcelona winger earlier in the transfer window.

Arsenal have enjoyed a strong summer, adding Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, along with Fabio Vieira, who joined from Porto.
