Villarreal coach Unai Emery admits Yeremi Pino faces being sold.

Arsenal have reportedly tabled a £33m bid to add the 19-year-old winger to their already exciting ranks after he impressed throughout the 2021/22 season. He registered six goals and four assists in 21 starts in all competitions as he helped Villarreal reach the Champions League semi-finals.

However, despite the Spain international carrying a £67m release clause, Villarreal manager Emery has admitted the club will have to cash in on him if a suitable offer arrives.

Ahead of Villarreal's La Liga win against Real Valladolid on Saturday, Emery admitted that Pino would 'have to' depart if he was the subject of a concrete approach. He said: "If an offer arrives for players like Yeremi Pino, then he will have to leave. We have a responsibility with the club. It is what it is."

Arsenal chief Edu flew to Valencia on Sunday fueling talk of a deal being close for Pino.
