YERMEY PINO’s agent is reportedly in talks with several Premier League clubs over a summer move for his client – with Arsenal allegedly leading the race.
The winger caught the eye of multiple clubs last season with a string of impressive displays for Spanish big boys Villarreal.
And according to reports, Pino’s representative has been courted by a number of “important” Prem clubs.
That’s according to El Periodico Mediterraneo, who claim the teams have held preliminary transfer talks with Spaniard’s reps.
A formal offer, however, has yet to be tabled by any club – including from Arsenal.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly eager to add the 19-year-old to his Champions-League-chasing squad before the transfer window shuts.
Villarreal are said to have slapped a £67.5million release clause on the forward.
But it’s been claimed the Yellow Submarine will let the teenager abandon ship if they receive a fee in the region of £34m-£42m for his services.
Pino, a product of Villarreal’s academy, enjoyed a stellar campaign for Unai Emery’s side last season.
The teen scored seven goals and racked up four assists in 40 appearances for the Castellon club – who ended the 2021/22 season in seventh place.
Pino and his Villarreal team-mates will kick off their La Liga campaign on Saturday evening, travelling to the Jose Zorrilla Stadium to take on Valladolid.
