Everton have been linked with a move for exciting young AS Monaco forward Anthony Martial this summer, with the Daily Mirror reporting that he has impressed Toffees scouts with his displays in the Champions League.
The 19-year-old certainly made an impression in Monaco’s first leg tie away to the Gunners, helping the Ligue 1 side to a memorable 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium to seal their progression on away goals.
A striker who likes to drift wide, Martial looks at times like a young Thierry Henry, who also started at Monaco before going on to star for Arsenal later in his career.
Should Arsenal and other bigger clubs be paying closer attention here? Everton could well land themselves a superb young talent to partner upfront with another world class starlet in Romelu Lukaku – could this kind of potency in attack threaten the Gunners or indeed Liverpool and Manchester United in the race for a top four place next season?
