Arsenal have reportedly joined Juventus and Inter Milan in the pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain starlet Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.

The 17-year-old was given his first-team bow in January after making waves in PSG's reserves and has since been earning rave reviews for his performances in Ligue 1.

According to talkSPORT, Arsenal have sent scouts to compile a report on the teenage winger, while his agent has since confirmed that another English club are also chasing his client.

But Christophe Mongai does not believe that PSG would consider selling Bahebeck in the summer, despite Arsenal allegedly being in hot pursuit.

Mongai told L'Equipe: "I can confirm that the boy is being watched by Juventus and Inter Milan, as well as two English teams - but I don't think PSG would want to sell him."


Bahebeck has been compared to compatriot Nicolas Anelka, and could follow the same route as the Chelsea striker should he eventually join Arsenal.

Anelka was acquired by Arsenal from PSG for £500,000 at the age of 17 and went on to win the league and FA Cup with the Gunners before being sold to Real Madrid in 1999.
