Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Argentine youngster Maxi Romero after issues involving his ownership rights were resolved.
This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Gunners are set to land the talented forward for a fee of around £4.5 million sooner rather than later.
In fact, it was only recently reported that Arsenal official Dick Law had flown to Argentine to secure the deal, so it now appears that his job has almost been completed as the north London outfit continue to plan for the future.

The next Messi
It's certainly not surprising that the club's hierarchy are determined to complete the coup, with a number of outlets claiming that the player's been tipped to emulate Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
Of course, Romero has some way to go before proving his credentials on the European scene, but the prospect of him arriving on English soil will no doubt please the club's faithful.

The youngster is a versatile forward, who certainly knows where the goal is, so may well become a key player for the north London outfit in the years to come.
Ultimately, the transfer will be one for the future, but it remains to be seen as to whether the Arsenal chief will place him in the club's academy or whether he will hand him a role in the Under-21 or even first-team setup.
For now, though, Wenger and Co. will no doubt be focussing on the rest of the Premier League campaign as the Gunners continue their fine form in England's elite division.
In fact, after eight victories in succession, Wenger's side remain in the hunt for the league title, while they will certainly be confident of securing their place in next year's Champions League.
Arsenal now ready
After a slow start to the campaign, Arsenal have been remarkable since the turn of the year and must now take this form into the 2015/16 campaign.
If they're able to do that, then perhaps the good times under Wenger in north London will return. Of course, they are on course to securing their second FA Cup in as many seasons, but fans are desperate to see the league title return to the club.
No doubt the signing of Romero will be a great one for the future, but Arsenal fans will be demanding immediate success. Next term may well bring just that.
