According to, the talented 21-year-old is also on Chelsea’s radar as the winter window approaches, while European giants such as Juventus and AS Roma are also weighing up moves for him in the near future.

Thauvin has scored three goals and laid on one assist so far this season as he continues to establish himself as one of French football’s most exciting young hopes, and he certainly looks ready to compete in a stronger league and for a bigger club.

Arsenal are known for bringing in the world’s best young talent, with Arsene Wenger particularly keen to raid his native France whenever possible, and it could be that Thauvin will see a move to the Emirates Stadium as the best next step for him in his career.

Still, United and Chelsea have considerable financial resources and could be in with a chance of snapping up the France Under-21 international, who will also surely be in line for a call-up to the senior squad if he maintains his fine form.
