Arsenal track Congolese star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are on the trail of highly-rated Guingamp midfielder Gianelli Imbula, according to The Sun.

The 20-year-old has a burgeoning reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in Ligue 2, making 27 appearances last season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is monitoring Imbula's progress at Stade du Roudourou, alongside a number of other French clubs, including Lyon and Rennes.

The Congolese-born star made his Guingamp debut in 2009, at the time becoming the youngest player ever to turn out in France's top-flight, aged 17 years, one month and four days.

Imbula has excelled over the past three years, and is tipped for a bright future in the game.

Whether or not he can succeed in the Premier League - specifically at the Emirates Stadium - remains to be seen. But, if the Arsenal boss is renowned for one thing, it's spotting a player, nurturing and developing them into a future star.

The youngster is under contract at Guingamp until 2015, however, an offer from a bigger club will likely prove too difficult for either club or player to turn down.
