French youngster M'Baye Niang has begun his week long trial at Arsenal as the club look to see whether the forward is worth bringing to the club on a permanent transfer.
The 17-year-old impressed many last season as he made 23 appearances for struggling Caen after making his debut in the previous season and becoming the second youngest goal scorer in Ligue 1 history.
Caen were eventually relegated but it seems Niang suitably impressed and Arsenal will now have the opportunity to see how he works alongside the first team in pre-season training.
Niang began training with Arsenal earlier this week and, despite reports suggesting he had done against his clubs will, it was revealed they are more than happy for him to head to north London.
"Contrary to what has been written on certain French and foreign websites, Mbaye Niang has left to have a trial at Arsenal with the agreement of president Jean-Francois Fortin and technical staff headed by Patrice Garande," read a statement from Caen, as reported on Sky Sports.
"At this point, Caen has not received any offer from a club, either in France or abroad, for Mbaye Niang."
