Over the years, Hirving Lozano has been linked with many moves to the Premier League, including back when he was playing at PSV Eindhoven.
In the end, he ended up at Napoli, where he has experienced many ups and downs, with a contract currently running until June 2024.
His current situation has caught the eye of a few clubs, including Arsenal and Newcastle United, if the latest report from La Repubblica is to be believed.
It’s said that, as things stand, negotiations for a renewal of Lozano isn’t exactly going well, and the player ‘could leave at the end of the season’.
That’s when Arsenal and Newcastle are mentioned, with both the Gunners and the Magpies said to be ‘courting’ him.
It’s no secret that Mikel Arteta has been after a new wide player of late, with all the talk about Mykhaylo Mudryk, and it wouldn’t be surprising if someone like Lozano was a backup option for his plans.
Beyond Arsenal, Newcastle, who recently drew with the Gunners in the Premier League, are still looking around to see how to improve Eddie Howe’s squad.
This seems more like a deal for the summer, but if Shakhtar continue to stand firm on their star’s market price, perhaps the London side might bring things forward if they are really keen on Lozano?
