Transfer news: Arsenal linked with move for PSG midfielder Javier Pastore
The Argentina international is yet to score for the French club this season
Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a move for PSG's attacking midfielder Javier Pastore.
While the Gunners are understood to be on the verge of completing a move for Mesut Ozil, and have enquired after Chelsea striker Demba Ba, there are claims that Arsene Wenger is not finished there.
The suggestion is that any deal for Pastore would be a season-long loan.
Pastore joined PSG in 2011 for £33m, and has since gone on to score 24 goals and provide 16 assists in his 90 appearances for the reigning champions of France.
However, he is yet to find the net this season in four appearances and following the big money addition of Edinson Cavani from Napoli to the already fine array of talent at the Parc de Princes, opportunities could begin to become limited for the 24-year-old.
That PSG are also understood to be preparing a late move for Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata would only exacerbate the situation.
The Gunners are eager to add to their squad, although manager Arsene Wenger has said that any additions would have to be "special" to warrant the club making a move. Pastore, who has 13 caps for Argentina, would certainly fall into that bracket.
Reports have suggested Manchester United could also make a move.
