Arsenal given no encouragement for Palermo striker Hernandez

Vincenzo D'Ippolito, the agent of Arsenal target Abel Hernandez, has poured cold water on reports of a move to North London. tribalfootball.com claimed the Gunners were still tracking the Uruguayan ace, but his agent was adamant this was highly unlikely.

"Abel is still young, he just turned 20 and so we should leave him tranquil," the agent told Tuttomercatoweb.com.

"We will see what happens in future. Arsenal? These are dated things now. Everyone likes the player, even in Italy. For now though it is premature to talk.

"He is fine at Palermo. A January exit? I can exclude this. Palermo wouldn't even negotiate as they don't want to sell him."
