Arsenal eye move for Pablo Armero

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are one of several Premier League clubs tipped to make a move for Colombian World Cup star Pablo Armero this summer.

According to ESPN, the left-back has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal and Southampton among others, after an impressive showing at the tournament in Brazil.

Armero featured for Colombia last night as they were eliminated from the World Cup against holders Brazil in the quarter-finals. Brazil won 2-1 thanks to goals from defensive duo David Luiz and Thiago Silva. James Rodriguez scored Colombia's goal from the spot, and he leads the competition with six goals.

Armero spent half a season on loan at Upton Park, but made just five Premier League appearances for the Hammers. His full ownership rights were bought by Udinese this summer from Napoli, but he could be on the move again.

Arsenal and Southampton are both keeping tabs and the left-back is reportedly "desperate to get back into the Premier League on a permanent basis."

Saints have a need for another full-back following the £27m sale of Luke Shaw to Manchester United. Arsenal meanwhile, do not need a left-back desperately, with Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal at the position.
