Arsenal have handed French youngster M'Baye Niang the opportunity to train with the club as they hope to convince him to make a move to the Premier League in the coming weeks.
The 17-year-old forward currently plays for Caen and has quickly established a reputation as one to look out for in France where he already has a number of admirers.
It is believed that he is already on the radar of both Newcastle and Stoke, but Arsenal are hoping they can convince him to choose a move to north London by offering him the chance to train at their London Colney complex.
However, the new head coach of Caen, Patrice Garande, wants him to remain at the club and believes that he should turn down the opportunity with Arsenal.
"What I say in relation to him is simple, he has talent - yes, does he have the potential to make a career - yes," Garande told Sky Sports. "But is he doing the right thing for this at the moment - no."
He was then asked if he would be featuring Niang in the first team next season, Garande replied: "If he is here I will count on him, he leaves tomorrow we won't."
Niang may only be a teenager but he quickly proved his worth in the first team last season where he was able to make 14 league starts and score two goals in his first Ligue 1 campaign.
