Arsenal transfer report: Gunners tracking French teen wonderkid goalkeeper Alban Lafont

20 Sep

Arsenal are ready to pounce for French teen sensation Alban Lafont.

The 17-year-old has been tipped for a bright future and has already made his debut for Toulouse.

That came last year when Lafont was just 16 years and 310 days old, making him the youngest ever goalkeeper to play in Ligue 1.

Arsenal, according to L’Equipe, have been tracking the youngster ever since and they have been very impressed.

The Frenchman kept eight clean sheets in 24 appearances last season to ensure that Toulouse avoided relegation from Ligue 1.

Lafont was rewarded with a contract until June 2020 for his efforts and any sale is likely to demand a very high fee for someone so young.
