Arsenal are reportedly interested in Lille winger, Sofiane Boufal, who’s been described as the ‘new Eden Hazard’… apparently…

Boufal has only signed for the French team during the summer and therefore, it’s unlikely that he’ll want to leave but if reports are to be believed, he’s a man in demand.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also supposedly interested in the 22-year-old, who has scored five goals so far this season for the Ligue 1 team.

As much as it’s possible that we could be looking at the winger, the chances of him leaving Lille so soon after signing is unlikely to say the least. Also, hailing him as the new Eden Hazard isn’t exactly helpful, seeing as his experience is currently lacking when compared to the Chelsea man.

Saying this, Boufal is clearly making waves and he might be one to look out for in the future.

Here are some of his highlights for this season so far.
