Premier League giants track Paris St-Germain teen striker

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are scouting Paris St Germain starlet Hervin Ongenda, according to French reports carried by talkSPORT.

The talkSPORT article quotes reports from France that claim Chelsea, Arsenal and United are weighing up a move for the 17-year-old. Ongenda is highly-rated in the French capital, and made his professional debut for PSG against Arras in the French Cup last weekend.

And French newspaper Le Parisien has suggested that the Premier League big-guns are tracking Ongenda in the hope that they will be able to sign him at the end of the season.

The teenager is yet to sign a professional deal with the French club - his youth contract expires at the end of the season - which has alerted the Premier League suitors to his potential availability this summer.

Ongenda's father, Felix Ongenda, insists his son is keen to see what PSG offer, but dropped a hint that he would be willing to move abroad in the future.

He said: "My son did not ask this kind of question. He only thinks of being on the pitch and dreams in Paris. It is the only club he has known and we will see what PSG offer him in the next few months.

"But in five months time he will have finished his training and he will be a finished product, ready to work anywhere."

The France under-18 international has an good goalscoring record at youth level, scoring 9 in 11 appearances for the under-16s and one in two games for the French under-18s.
