Arsenal interested in Penarol winger Facundo Pellistri

Arsenal are interested in Penarol winger Facundo Pellistri.

The sought-after teenager has also attracted interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs including Manchester City, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

Calciomercato.com says the Gunners want to recruit young and talented players in the mould of Matteo Guendouzi and Gabriel Martinelli, who were signed for a combined £13million.

And Arteta's Arsenal think Pellistri fits their criteria.

The 18-year-old attacker has a £12million release clause in his contract and his Spanish ancestry entitles him to a EU passport - removing any potential work permit issues.
