Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Lyon forward Clinton N’jie this summer, with the Gunners impressed with the player’s progress so far in the Ligue 1.

This report is according to popular media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, who claim the Gunners are ready to bring the young Cameroonian to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

TMW claim the Gunners are keen on completing a deal for the 21-year-old and will hijack the young forward from fellow north London rivals Tottenham – who have reportedly tabled a £7million bid to sign him last week.

N’jie who is labeled the next “Samuel Eto’o” is a product of Lyon’s illustrious academy which has produced the likes of Ludovic Giuly, Sidney Govou, Florent Malouda and Karim Benzema.

The high-rated forward was in action against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup last weekend in front of the Emirates crowd alongside teammate Alexandre Lacazette  who is also an Arsenal target, and it seems the Gunners have seen enough to want to land him this summer.
