Arsenal have agreed a deal to take Caen youngster M’Baye Niang on trial with a view to a permanent transfer this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The report claims that Arsenal have acted quickly to beat off competition from the likes of Newcastle and Stoke to take the 17-year-old forward on trial, after Arsene Wenger was left impressed by the players potential.

It’s believed Niang will link up with the Gunners this week and try to impress Wenger as he’s put through his paces with the rest of the first team squad during pre-season training.

However, new Caen coach Patrice Garande believes leaving the French outfit this summer would be a mistake for the youngster as he feels Niang should stay with Caen to continue his development.

“What I say in relation to him is simple, he has talent – yes, does he have the potential to make a career – yes,” he said.

“But is he doing the right thing for this at the moment – no.”

 “If he is here I will count on him, he leaves tomorrow we won’t.”

Garande is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Niang is an exciting young striker who burst on to the scene in Ligue 1 last season, scoring 2 goals in 14 starts for Caen.

He’s certainly not a big name signing, or considered a first team player just yet, he’s one for the future but has the potential to do big things if developed correctly. And there’s not many better places to be coached as a youngster than Arsenal.

    I dont see this as any exciting news. There have been a number of young players who have come to Arsenal only to be sold later on without giving them any chance. Barazite, Simpson, Vela, Sunu and a host of others have come to Arsenal hoping to make it to the first team but none have been given a fair chance. What of Wellington Silva and Benik Afobe who should be ready for the first team now??? Quality players who would be sold as well, without giving them any chance at the top level
