Video: Pape Gueye highlights show Arsenal fans should be excited by positive transfer reports

Pape Gueye could be a star in the making.

Pape Gueye is probably not a name most Arsenal fans will have been familiar with until the last few days, but there’s a lot of buzz about the youngster at the moment.

The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with us by Jeunes Footeux and a look at some of his video highlights give a clear idea of what he could bring to the team if claims that a deal is close to being agreed prove accurate.

Watch below as Gueye shows himself to be quick, strong, good on the ball, and not afraid to have the occasional pop at goal.

An Estadio Deportivo report described the young Frenchman as a hybrid of N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba, and we can see where they’re coming from.

Of course, it would be a big step up from Ligue 2 to the Premier League, but Kante made the similar jump earlier in his career and quickly rose to become one of the best players in the world.

Back in the early Arsene Wenger years, we’d have snapped up a player like Kante before anyone else, let’s hope we can be the first to this relatively undiscovered gem in Gueye!

    Who or what is Jeunes Footaux, and on what authority are they speculating on Arsenal’s interest in this player? Any verification whatsoever, or just hoping to sell advertising?

    Since arsenal don’t have unlimited funds, our scouting needs to be top notch. Who heard of Kante or Mahrez before they came to Leicester? For 4-5M such players are well worth a punt. We also need to actively scout the championship. Players like Maddison and Alli can be had.

    While I would always urge caution when assessing players on the basis of video footage,Gueye looks a very interesting proposition, and I can see why a number of Clubs are said to be after him..If we can prise him away for around 5/6 million it could turn out to be an excellent bit of business.He looks the part.

    Looks decent , Already dreaming of him and Torreira in the middle of the park .
    Now we need an attacking minded midfielder .
    Players like this often get the job done just look at the gems Salzburg and Leipzig are finding .
    I believe the 72 million used on Pepe would have made this team properly balanced .
    We really need a good clear out . Ozil , Elneny ,Miki one of either Auba or Laca ,Nelson,Socrates ,Luiz ,Mustafi .We need to loan Willock out ,Just my thoughts though.
