Arsenal is set to table an offer for Guingamp youngster Marcus Thuram at the end of the season, according to Le 10 Sport.
Thuram is the son of former French World up winner Lilian Thuram and has been a shining light in a very mediocre Guingamp side.
Unlike his father, who was a defender, Thuram is a forward, albeit more of a wide player than an out and out striker.
The 21-year-old was pivotal in knocking out Paris St Germain at the quarter-final stage of the Coupe de la Ligue, scoring the winner in extra time from the penalty spot and again scored in the semi-final against Monaco helping his side progress to next weeks final.
We are not the only side interested in Thuram, German giants Dortmund are also reported to be interested in the youngster and are said to be very keen.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reported to be the person that brought Thuram’s name up as a potential signing having had experience of watching him in France when he was in charge of PSG.
No fee has been mentioned but Guingamp are apparently prepared to sell as long as the price is right.
You have to think that this is a very realistic signing, if Emery himself has identified the forward as a potential signing then it must be serious and based on what we know, he would be a great prospect and fantastic acquisition.
