Arsenal are interested in signing 21-year-old Cameroonian striker Clinton N’jie from Lyon according to reports.

The young forward who is labeled the “next Samuel Eto’o” is a product of the illustrious Lyon academy which has the likes of Ludovic Giuly, Sidney Govou, Florent Malouda, Karim Benzema to mention but a few, turn out for the first team and gone on to become stars.

The Gunners north London rivals Tottenham had made a £7million bid last week to sign the striker, but it seems they will have to fight with their city rivals for his signature.

The Spurs have been occupied with their pursuit of Saido Berahino from West Brom, and will be disappointed if the Gunners steal this one from under their noses after they had tracked N’jie for a very long time.

The forward played against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup last weekend in front of the Emirates crowd alongside teammate Alexandre Lacazette  who is also an Arsenal target, and it seems Arsenal have seen enough to want to land him this summer.
