Arsenal given three reasons to be excited about Yeremy Pino after promising £34m bid

Arsenal fans can marvel at a glowing review of Yeremy Pino given by Villarreal Under-23 assistant coach Nando Martinez, who gave them three reasons to be excited about the prospective transfer.

The Gunners could soon welcome the Spanish teenager after submitting a bid that is reportedly set to be accepted.

Having broken through at a young age, Pino has attracted his fair share of attention from top sides around Europe. While Liverpool are among those to have flirted with the idea of a swoop, Arsenal may have already made the decisive move by submitting a £34million bid.

Spanish outlet AS claim that Villarreal are likely to accept the opening offer due to their difficult financial situation. The youngster has a £67.5m release clause but the Gunners seemingly stand a good chance of pulling off a cut-price deal.

As if his CV isn’t enough to get fans excited about, Martinez delivered a glowing assessment of the Villarreal star which included emphasis on his character, how good he is to work with and how much he loves football.

“Yeremy stands out for his character,” Martinez told El Pais. “The more difficult the challenge, the more able he is to demonstrate his potential. He maintains the essence of when he played on the street as a child.

“In addition, he lives for football, and every day ensures he has the right complementary training, nutrition and rest. Yeremy has been, and is, a blessing for his coaches.”

Arsenal made a promising start to the season on Friday by leaving Selhurst Park with three points.

Martinelli was on target and a Marc Guehi own goal sealed a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, putting to bed painful memories of the three consecutive defeats that kick-started last campaign.

With big pressure to clinch fourth spot after missing out last term, Arteta’s next assignment is a home tie against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon. It remains to be seen if the deal for Pino is beyond doubt by the time the match gets underway.
