Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the latest clubs to express an interest in SM Caen striker Yann Karamoh, according to the Mirror (via the Sun).

Karamoh has just twelve months left to run on his current contract, and his club are prepared to sell the 19 year old for £9m this summer to prevent him from leaving for nothing next year.

The Gunners are believed to have sent scouts out to France to watch the Frenchman in view to placing a bid before the end of August.

Karamoh made his senior debut for Caen only last season in a 3-2 win over Lorient last August. Since then, he has made 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals and providing four assists.

Last campaign he mostly played on a right hand side of a front three but his future is likely to be as a central striker. Back in June, he made his debut after coming on as a substitute for France Under 21s, playing up front in a 3-0 win over Albania.
