Arsenal eye ‘new Eto’o’ deal

Arsenal are considering activating the £800,000 release clause in Lyon starlet Clinton N’Jie’s Lyon contract, according to reports from The Mirror.

The 21-year-old has risen to prominence in recent times, with his performances in French football having earned him his Cameroon debut – a game in which he scored in against the Congo.

With his mix of pace, power and eye for goal, the youngster has been compared to compatriot Samuel Eto’o, who is widely considered to be one of the finest players in African football’s history.

But despite his promise, N’Jie is available at a knockdown price due to a clause in his contract.

Arsene Wenger has been alerted by this, and is keen to explore a January move for the starlet.

Arsenal have a history of snapping up talented young players from French football, with Yaya Sanogo one of their latest imports.

N’Jie is a rookie in the Lyon first-team after making his true breakthrough this year, but he has found the back of the net already, netting in a Europa League qualifier.
