Arsenal interested in French starlet whose already debuted in Ligue 1

According to Onze Mondial via French newspaper L’Equipe, Arsenal are among one of the top European clubs that are interested in Marseille starlet Isaac Lihadji.

The 17-year-old right-winger is also attracting the interest of Lille, Borussia Dortmund and Valencia, L’Equipe claim that these sides could offer a financially more significant package to the ace than Marseille can.

Lihadji has already featured twice in Ligue 1 for Marseille, it’s not surprising to see that the ace is reportedly on the radar of top clubs after making his debut in the French top-flight.

Lihadji certainly seems like a talent to keep an eye out for in the future, as per Transfermarkt, the ace has won over 20 youth caps for France through Under-16’s to Under-18’s level.

Considering Arsenal’s transfer business this summer, it’s clear to see that the Gunners are working towards building a younger side – there’s no harm in us keeping tabs on some of Europe’s top talents.

If Lihadji continues to build his profile with Marseille, it’s inevitable that the ace will be heavily linked with a possible move to some of Europe’s bigger clubs.

    Saw his tricks on Youtube

    I don’t think EPL defenders would give him enough time to do those tricks, but Arsenal would have nothing to lose because he is very cheap and young

    Hopefully we can get talented youth for the future

    I’m hopeful for Martinelli, Saka, Smith Rowe, Guendouzi

    Would have been nice to have kept Beilik and Gnabry

    Does he play CB?

    If we sell Xhaka in January we must try to get Rabiot on loan.

    Rabiot and Torreira at the base of the midfield would be exciting. Full of energy and defensively solid. Rabiot passing ability is equal to if not better than Xhaka.

    If we could the get Partey in the summer and even try to get Rabiot on a permanent transfer (even at the expense of Torreira) we would have an amazing midfield base.

    Partey and Rabiot would be a dream pairing. Strong, athletic, defensively solid and lots of energy.
