Arsenal are tracking PSG youngster Hervin Ongenda, according to reports in the French capital.

Despite making his professional debut against Arras in the French Cup over the weekend, Ongenda, 17, is yet to sign a professional with the Ligue 1 outfit, with his current youth deal set to expire in the summer. Meaning interested clubs could sign the attacking midfielder/forward on a free if he does not commit his future to PSG.

Le Parisen claims Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all keeping tabs on the youngster, with a view to acquire him on a free in six months time.

Felix Ongenda, the father of the young Frenchman, says his son has not thought about his future, but admits he is aware of the possibility of leaving PSG at the end of the season.

When asked about his son’s future, Ongenda senior said:

‘My son did not ask this kind of question.

‘He only thinks of being on the pitch and dreams in Paris. It is the only club he has known and we will see what PSG offer him in the next few months.’

He added:

‘But in five months time he will have finished his training and he will be a finished product, ready to work anywhere.’

Known for his dribbling skills, composure and agility, Ongenda will certainly be watched by Arsene Wenger, who is keen to sign and develop young talent into world-class players.
