Arsenal must match £30m release clause to sign Eredivisie star

PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano has a release clause of  $40m (£30m), according to ESPN.

The Mexican international is reportedly being watched by Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley after an impressive start to his career in the Eredivisie following his €8m move from Pachuca in July.

Since making his league debut against AZ Almaar back in August, Lozano has scored in all but one of his six Eredivisie matches, only failing to score in the 2-0 defeat to Heerenveen in mid September. During the international break, he also came off the bench to score in the 3-1 win over Trinidad & Tobago in a World Cup qualifier.

The Gunners have reportedly been considering a £20m January bid for the winger, but sources at ESPN report this would not match PSV’s asking price for the player. Any club would likely have to match the Mexican’s buyout clause if they wanted to sign the midfielder with Lozano having signed a six year contract until 2023 with the Dutch club.
