According to a report from Estadio Deportivo, Arsenal are among a number of clubs interested in Le Havre’s Pape Gueye.
The 21-year-old Frenchman has slowly made a brilliant name for himself in the French second division. Gueye has played 22 times for Le Havre this season mainly as a defensive midfielder.
He has also been given the captain’s armband on four occasions despite only turning 21 a couple of weeks ago. Gueye has less than 18 months left on his contract and Le Havre don’t want to lose him for free.
The report claims that Arsenal are joined by AC Milan, Sevilla and Udinese are all monitoring Gueye’s situation. The Frenchman is truly an exciting prospect and has been dubbed as a hybrid between two of his country’s biggest stars – Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante.
Those are some big names to be associated with but his style of play does remind you of the pair. Arsenal have already picked up a gem from Ligue 2 in Matteo Guendouzi who has been brilliant for us.
Gueye has been making the headlines since before last summer. It is a surprise that he is still playing for Le Havre considering how good his performances were at the under-19 level.
Good buy for Arsenal?
It is certain that a big club will snap him up in the summer but should Arsenal be the one? Gueye has the potential to be one of the best in the years to come and he will be available for a bargain considering that he will only have a year left on his contract.
If things don’t quite work out for him at the Emirates, the Gunners will certainly make a profit when they sell him on which makes the deal a no brainer to go for in the upcoming summer transfer window.
