Spain international has shone in La Liga in recent times, and it seems like he is being lined up for a move to a bigger club, with Gunners and Blaugrana mentioned as his two main suitors.
However, it looks that Arsenal’s failure to land Upamecano means they’re now set to press ahead with a move for Pau, who had initially been a summer target for them. The report adds that Torres could cost around £42m, which looks like very reasonable money for one of the finest young defenders in Europe at the moment.
Gunners urgently need to strengthen in that area of the pitch after the poor form of the likes of David Luiz and Sokratis Papastathopoulos this campaign. Upamecano could have been a decent signing for that position, but a £42m deal for someone like the Spaniard would show more ambition and surely please the club’s long-suffering fans
Arsenal have terrible consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are in a 10th place in the table.
London club signed several players during the summer transfer window like Gabriel Martinelli from Ituano, Nicolas Pepe from Lille
