Arsenal and Manchester United prepared to sign La Liga star
Arsenal and Man United have apparently both made offers for Villarreal defender Pau Torres.
As indicated by Ivisionsport, Pau Torres is also a target for Barcelona as they hope to improve their defence, but both Arsenal and Man United have just made an offer and are ready to pay as much as £53million to sign him.
Pau Torres has looked a spectacular performer in La Liga and could now be prepared to leave for a greater club, and it is extraordinary to see him in the Premier League.
Man United could at present do with improving their cautious choices in spite of spending large on Harry Maguire the previous summer, with Pau Torres clearly an upgrade on the likes of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.
The Red Devils need to guarantee they can turn out to be increasingly serious for significant distinctions again not long after a troublesome season, and the signing of a quality young defender like Pau Torres could be a critical piece of their restoring process.
Pau Torres could be an exciting signing for Arsenal and Manchester United.
Arsenal are also in critical need of greater quality at the back after another disillusioning season, with the Spain international sure to be an upgrade on unconvincing performers like Sokratis Papastathopoulos, David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi.
The Gunners, in any case, are not known for spending enormous on signings time after time and Torres plainly wouldn’t come for cheap.
