Arsenal And Chelsea Watch Deadly French Striker

Posted by

Premier League clubs are watching the progress of the young French international.

The Express are reporting that Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are amongst the clubs watching Rennes attacker Paul Georges Ntep.

The forward has featured in every Ligue 1 game for his club this term, and has been a key part of their excellent recent run, scoring six goals his side have gone on a nine-match unbeaten run.

The Gunners look favourites to sign the forward, as they have a long standing interest in the 22-year-old.

They have been watching the youngster since he came through the Auxerre youth ranks with Yaya Sanogo, and the Express claim that Ntep rejected a move to the Emirates Stadium at the same time that Sanogo accepted the offer.

It has proved to be a wise decision, as the attacker has flourished with the extra game-time afforded to him in Ligue 1.

The North Londoners could face serious competition for his signature however, with Paris Saint-Germain always keeping a close eye on the best players in their domestic leagues. The Blues and City have also had scouts watching the French U-21 international in recent weeks.

Ntep plays in off the left, and his pace and trickery have caused plenty of Ligue 1 right-backs problems.
