Arsene Wenger has highlighted Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kingsley Coman as a future star for the Gunners.

The 17-year old graduated from the PSG academy, becoming the French clubs youngest ever player when he made his debut in February 2013 as a substitute for Marco Verratti.

The youngster has been compared to Juventus and France star Paul Pogba, impressing with both his technical and physical ability, as he has progressed through the French national ranks - making his debut for the Under-21's in 2014.

Despite the comparisons, he is seen as much more attacking than his compatriot, appearing especially comfortable on the left wing and as a number 10. Despite a fairly low goalscoring record - he only scored once in six UEFA Youth League appearances - he has impressed for PSG II in the CFA, and PSG are attempting to secure the youngster's services.

Considering his rapid rise, it is not surprising the youngster is searching for a move away from the French champions, with their stockpile of world class talent likely to limit any first team opportunities he may need to further his career.

It is with this knowledge that Coman has refused to sign a new contract with the French club.

Sensing a potential departure from Paris, The Metro is reporting that Arsenal have offered the youngster a four-year deal, with a £1 million compensation fee offered to the club.

It has been previously rumoured that Pogba's current side Juventus have been scouting the youngster, whilst Newcastle and Roma are also interested.

Whilst a move to Juventus may tempt the player, with Pogba, Pirlo and company able to impart their wisdom on Coman, Arsenal's record of youth integration cannot be snubbed.

Arsene Wenger is said to be keen on the player, and a place in the Gunners first-team may be just around the corner for the French national starlet.
