Five facts about Arsenal linked Clinton N'Jie

Emirates Inside

Arsenal have been linked with a potential £800,000 swoop for a Lyon striker.

The Mirror claimed over the weekend that Arsenal were keeping tabs on young Lyon striker Clinton N’Jie.

The report claimed that the Gunners could be interested in making an £800,000 offer for the striker looking ahead to how Arsene Wenger can improve his attacking unit this winter.

Danny Welbeck arrived from Manchester United on the final day of the transfer window but that doesn’t seem to have dissuaded the boss from looking at ways he can develop potential targets.

Here are five facts about him.

He’s a 21-year-old professional from Cameroon.

He’s only ever played football with Lyon, representing the club at youth team level before progressing into the senior side.

He’s only ever played international football for the Cameroon senior side with a strike rate of more than one goal per game.

He averaged one goal for every five games for the Lyon B team and is yet to open his account for the senior side.

His only playing honour so far is a runners up medal in the French equivalent of the League Cup.
