Villarreal have set a price of around £42 million for Arsenal target Yeremy Pino, according to Fabrizio Romano in his daily briefing for CaughtOffside.
It’s reported elsewhere that Pino has a release clause of £67 million, meaning any team, as well as Arsenal, could be getting a bargain for the 19-year-old.
However, Villarreal are yet to receive any proposals for their talented teenager, although three Premier League clubs are said to be monitoring him.

Winger Still a Target for Arsenal
Arsenal’s desire to add a winger to their squad this summer has been no secret.
However, speaking in his column, Romano said: “It will not be an easy negotiation. Many clubs have been following Pino for months.
“He is a top player for the future that at least three Premier League clubs have been monitoring for some time.”
One of those other Premier League clubs is said to be Liverpool. However, the Reds’ need for the youngster is less than Arsenal’s.
Jurgen Klopp’s side already have Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz as their starting wingers, while Diogo Jota, Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott are all capable of playing there too.
If Pino were to move to Merseyside, he would be one for the future. However, given Arsenal’s young make-up of the squad, going there could see him get Premier League minutes much faster.
