Arsenal are set to take French forward M'Baye Niang on trial, but his new Caen coach Patrice Garande has advised him not to leave, reports

The 17-year-old is one of the most highly rated youngsters in Ligue 1, and has already attracted Premier League interest with Newcastle and Stoke said to be keeping tabs on his situation.

Niang scored twice in 14 league starts for Caen last season, and has shown plenty of promise for the future. But, in order to continue his development, Garande believes it's important the starlet stays in France where he will gain further first-team experience.

"What I say in relation to him is simple, he has talent - yes, does he have the potential to make a career - yes," he said. "But is he doing the right thing for this at the moment - no."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is renowned for signing, nurturing, and developing young players, bringing them through to the club's first-team. And, if reports are to be believed, Niang could become Arsenal's latest exciting new recruit.

Asked if he would be using the youngster next season, Garande added: "If he is here I will count on him, he leaves tomorrow we won't."
