ARSENAL are reportedly among seven Premier League clubs considering a move for Mexican winger Orbelin Pineda.

Tottenham, Wolves, Everton, Southampton, Newcastle and West Ham are also interested in him, according to 90min.

The report states that Pineda is prepared to considered a move to the English top-flight.

But the talented 24-year-old rejected the chance to join Manchester City in 2014.

Instead, he left Guadalajara for Cruz Azul in a deal worth more than £10million.
