Bargain Arsenal World Cup target admits uncertain future

Date published: Monday 25th June 2018 3:21

Reported Arsenal target Miguel Layun is dreaming of staying at Sevilla this summer, although he admits he is uncertain over his future.

Layun spent the second half of last season on loan at Sevilla from Porto, and is currently impressing at the World Cup with Mexico.

AS recently suggested that Arsenal were interested in the versatile wideman, but the 30-year-old would like to make his switch to Spain permanent.

“I’m just like everyone, waiting for something to be confirmed,” he told Cadena SER.

“In a tournament like the World Cup I’m totally focused on what I want to achieve here, but of course there is always that issue of not knowing what will be of my future.

“Participating at such an important club in Europe was very special. I expressed that it would be a dream to be able to continue with the team.

“I still haven’t ruled out the possibility of staying at Sevilla, because for me it would be very nice.

“It’s complicated. But I think if they had the intention [to sign me] they would have already communicated with me and with my agent.”

If reports that Sevilla haven’t exercised their option to buy Layun for €6m are true, Arsenal could pounce with an offer.

Layun previously spent time in England with Watford, helping them win promotion to the Premier League in 2015. He made three top flight appearances before moving on to Porto.
