In-demand striker: “Arsenal appeals to me”

In-demand French striker Paul-Georges Ntep has stated that he would jump at the chance to move to the Emirates Stadium.

Auxerre and France under-21 striker Paul-Georges Ntep is one of the hottest prospects in European football, who is attracting the interest of some of the top sides in England.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with a move for the 21-year-old attacker of late.

However, it appears that Arsene Wenger’s men have the inside line to sign the skillful forward, as Ntep has admitted that he is interested in a move to the Emirates Stadium.

“Arsenal is a club that appeals to any player,” the starlet told L’Equipe.

“This is a club that relies on young people. After that it’s always the same question – it depends on the project. Arsenal, yes, but to do what?

“If this is a club that I am going to sit on the bench, then where is the progression? I’m not saying I want to go to a big club to start immediately but at least that can happen in the medium term.”

Ntep went on to admit that he has a January move on his mind.

“It is a situation I am currently thinking of,” he added.

“This is a decision that must be taken depending on the project presented, game time and the style of the team.

“The question may arise this winter but it will be for the club, first, to consider. For me, the day I have an interesting sporting project, I will answer the question.”

Ntep has been a star performer this season for Auxerre and has also netted six goals in seven appearances for the France under-21 side.
