Arsenal and Newcastle United keep tabs on Hirving Lozano’s situation, with the duo probably looking to sign him in January.
According to Sport Witness via Repubblica, Arsenal and Newcastle United are interested in bringing Hriving Lozano to the Premier League. The Mexican winger is having a decent season, but with his contractual situation, Napoli could make him available if a suitable offer arrives.
Hirving Lozano was a player heavily linked with a move to the Premier League years ago. He ended up joining Napoli and has had a mixed time in his career at Naples. He could move clubs this month or the summer as his contractual situation baffles fans.
Lozano has 18 months left on his deal, and Napoli may brace themselves for offers during the January window. The Serie A side are leading the domestic charts, as Luciano Spalleti may want to keep all his current players for the title race.
Yet, there is mention of interest from Arsenal and Newcastle United in the Mexican. The Gunners are in the market for a wide attacker, with Mykhaylo Mudryk their primary target for January. Negotiations with Shakhtar Donetsk have proved complicated, so the chances of Mikel Arteta shifting to an alternative exists.
Arteta has already made it clear that he wants to add quality players to his squad, not just numbers. The Gunners lack depth in the wide areas as Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka have taken on the pressure themselves. A player like Mudryk would immensely improve their chances in the title race, but someone in the mould of Lozano could also prove effective.
Arteta will only move for Lozano as an alternative, and the same goes for Newcastle United. Eddie Howe remains in the market to shore up a few critical positions, including bringing in a new attacker. The Magpies have performed well this season which has seen them climb up to third on the table.
Someone like Lozano could prove cost-effective for the Magpies, who may have funds to divert toward other areas. The 27-year-old Serie A ace would undoubtedly add to the quality and depth of the squad and may become an influential force with the right coaching.
Napoli are expected to keep hold of all their key players in January as they seek to win the Serie A title. The summer window might open up new possibilities, and Lozano could also stay by signing a new deal. If not, the Italian side might look to cash in when the summer window opens.
