Arsenal are looking into the possibility of signing Paris St-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck on a free transfer after he impressed in the recently completed Toulon tournament.

Bahebeck, 21, scored twice in the final of the Toulon tournament at the weekend, although he could not help France slipping to a 5-2 defeat to Brazil. However, he did finish the tournament as the top scorer with four goals.

Arsenal have NOT been in contact with Aurier

The Daily Mail are reporting that Bahebeck has attracted the interest of the Gunners, and PSG could be willing to allow the forward to leave for nothing providing they receive 50 per cent of any sell on fee that the north London club attracts.

Bahebeck’s representative Willie McKay is reported as saying: “When you consider the prices being asked for English players of similar level it's a very good deal. We have a lot of interest from English clubs.”


The PSG academy product has spent time on loan with Troyes and Valenciennes recently, as well as progressing through the France youth team ranks.
