Emirates boss keen on Nice youngster who has been unwisely compared to TH14.
Arsenal are being linked with a move for up and coming French Under 21 international Anthony Modeste. The Nice striker has been on loan as Ligue 2 side Angers this season and has shown great potential that has alerted Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who has sent his scouts to monitor his progress.
The striker has been somewhat ambitiously compared to Barcelona star Thierry Henry and has greatly improved whilst on loan at the Loire based club where he scored 18 goals in an excellent season. He has also excelled in Under 21 duty where he has scored six goals in 14 matches leading many to believe he will return to the first team picture at Nice next term.
Ironically Modeste’s attempts to secure a run in the Nice first team may depend on whether Loic Remy, another Arsenal target, leaves the club this summer. Many would wonder whether Wenger really needs to bring in yet more untried talent but perhaps the Frenchman believes a move for the powerful forward is too good an opportunity to turn down.
