Arsenal, Manchester United, Southampton and Tottenham reportedly scouted Bordeaux v Nice on Friday night.

According to a report from Get French Football News, scouts from English clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Southampton and Tottenham were present for Bordeaux's 0-0 draw with Nice on Friday night.

Nice's challenge for European football continued with a credible point, and it seems that a number of scouts were in attendance for the 0-0 draw.

Get French Football News report that scouts from Manchester United, Southampton and Tottenham watched on at the Matmut Atlantique as they prepare for the summer transfer window, whilst Arsenal were also there to watch midfielder Vincent Koziello.

The 20-year-old joined Nice from Cannes in 2013, and has impressed with his ability on the ball, though he stands at just 5ft 6in tall.

Koziello isn't the only Nice player to have earned plaudits this season though, as Nampalys Mendy, Alassane Plea and Jean Seri have also caught the eye.

Meanwhile, Bordeaux suffered a difficult January having lost midfielders Henri Saivet and Wahbi Khazri to Newcastle United and Sunderland respectively, and they could now risk losing more stars.

Striker Diego Rolan is bound to attract Premier League interest, whilst Arsenal may have been checking up on the progress of defender Mathieu Debuchy, who is on loan at Bordeaux until the end of the season.
