Arsenal have identified Edouardo Camavinga of Rennes as their top summer transfer target.
Still just 18, the midfielder became Angers back in April 2019.
He has since gone on to establish himself as a regular in the team. And ahs been tracked by clubs across Europe, including Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid, as well as PSG domestically.
His agent Jonathan Barnett is the same man who represents the likes of Gareth Bale, Jack Grealish and Mason Mount and it is believed his connections can help him secure a move to the Premier League.
With the teenager out of contract in 2022, now may be the time for Rennes to cash in on him, rather than risk him leaving on a free transfer in a year’s time.
He was born in Angola to Congolese parents, but moved to France when he was a small boy, and he has gone on to win three senior French caps.
