Arsenal are the long term admirers of French talent Florian Thauvin. Thauvin was linked with a move to Emirates in last January, but he surprised everyone by joining Lille after agreeing a four and a half year deal with them. Thauvin was then loaned back to Bastia where he bagged seven goals in 12 league games.
Now, some French news sources claim that Arsenal are again interested in signing Thauvin after seeing his inspiring performances in U-20 world cup where France became the champions.
Its seems that Thauvin is ready to ditch Lille even before his first league start as he wants to play for a champions league qualified team. He and his agent will have crunch talks with Lille management soon to decide his future.
If signed, Thauvin will become the second U-20 French signing of the summer as Arsenal have already confirmed the signing of Yaya Sanogo.
