Arsenal are interested in 17-year-old Rennes midfielder Lesley Ugochukwu, according to a report from France.
The 17-year-old defensive midfielder has already made his senior debut and racked up 20 appearances for the side, including playing as a substitute in a Europa Conference League draw against Spurs earlier this season.
Ugochukwu has had to deal with a setback recently, picking up an ankle injury that sidelined him for almost two months.
The youngster made his return for Rennes from the bench last Sunday, and has since started and provided an assist for the France u18s against Germany on Thursday.
Arsenal have reportedly been following Ugochukwu for the last few weeks, and they’re growing increasingly convinced of being able to sign him this summer.
Though the player does have a contract until 2024, so Rennes are still ultimately in control of his immediate future.
