Arsenal, City And United Among Teams Chasing The “New Pogba”

Arsenal are one of a number clubs pursuing Sochaux midfielder Lucien Agoume, according to reports in Italy.

Juventus and Inter Milan are believed to be keen on the 17-year-old while Manchester United and Manchester City are also keeping tabs on the player.

Agoume, who has been dubbed the “new Pogba” by some in the press, made his senior debut against Troyes back in October and has been receiving some rave reviews for his performances.

Despite Sochaux struggling in the French second division, the teenager has been afforded a great deal of game time, having made eight starts and 13 league appearances in total.

At international level, Agoume is already making a name for himself, having been named captain of France’s Under 17 side following his first game back in September.

He is expected to play a key role in European Under 17 Championship qualifiers against Sweden, Serbia and Slovakia later this month, with scouts from Europe’s top clubs no doubt keeping a close eye on him.
