Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea are all reportedly ready to battle it out for France u17 striker Lenny Pintor.
Pintor, who has been compared to Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembélé, currently plays for Ligue 2 side Stade Brest 29 but is allegedly attracting the attention of a few big Premier League clubs. Namely Arsenal, City and Chelsea.
The 17-year-old only penned his first professional deal with Brest recently having come through the ranks at Bastia. However, he played for France at the u17 World Cup in India this year, even scoring against Spain.
Pintor is yet to make his senior debut but has obviously caught the eye of several European clubs, if the report is to be believed.
Marseille have also been linked.
Given that he’s a teenager playing in the second tier of French football, there’s not a great deal known about him. However, that doesn’t mean to say that he’s not a talent or an exciting prospect. It also doesn’t mean that we’re not looking at signing him – far from it. Especially since Arsenal, Chelsea and City are always looking to add to their youth squads.
Considering he’s just signed his first senior contract, however, I doubt he’s on the look-out for a move but I could be wrong.
