Arsene Wenger has dropped a big hint that he will launch a transfer bid for Auxerre striker Paul George Ntep.

The Gunners have reportedly sent scouts to run the rule over the young French striker this season and have consistently been impressed.

Arsenal are in desperate need of some reinforcements up front, with Olivier Giroud proving to be Wenger's only proven option.

With Nicklas Bendtner expected to depart in the near future, Wenger was linked with a January move for Ntep, with €8m thought to be enough to secure the player's signature.

And Wenger has dropped a big hint that he is interested in acquiring the services of Ntep, by admitting he believes the striker has huge potential.

Speaking on French television over the weekend, Wenger said: "Paul George Ntep has the potential to have a great future.

"It all depends on his mind, but he is a great prospect."

If Arsenal were to sign Ntep, it would be the second time within a year that they have raided Auxerre for a young, talented striker.

Yaya Sanogo moved to the Emirates in the summer on a free transfer but has struggled with fitness since joining up with the Arsenal squad.
