The Gunners are believed to be hot on the heels of Paul-Georges Ntep, with a report in Italy claiming the London side has already made an offer.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with Auxerre forward Paul-Georges Ntep, with Arsene Wenger praising the young striker recently.

With the sprightly attacker impressing for the Ligue 2 side and also starring for France under-21, links to clubs in England and Italy have emerged.

Arsenal and Roma are two of the sides being most heavily linked with an approach for the striker, with potential for a January move on the cards.

Tutto Mercato have reported that the north London side have taken the initiative in the race for the youngster’s signature, and have already bid €6 million for the future star.

The report also indicates that Roma are likely to go toe-to-toe with Wenger’s men for Ntep.

Arsenal are thought to want to sign Ntep in January but loan him back to Auxerre, in a bid to sweeten the deal.

The Gunners have past links with Auxerre also, as they signed Bacary Sagna from the Burgundy club.
