Arsenal have added Guingamp forward Marcus Thuram to their transfer wishlist, according to French outlet Le10 Sport.
Gunners boss Unai Emery, who is in his first season in charge at the Emirates, is keen to strengthen his squad this summer.
And it’s reported that the North London club have had their heads turned by the 21-year-old’s impressive performances this term.
Despite playing for a team sitting 18th and seven points from safety, Thuram has netted 11 goals in all competitions mainly from a wide position.
With his contract expiring in 2020, the starlet looks likely to move on from Guingamp when the summer comes even if they survive in Ligue 1.

However, it’s claimed that Arsenal are not the only club hoping to take the attacker away from France, with German side Borussia Dortmund also linked.
Despite being born in Parma, Italy, Thuram represents France Under-20s at international level and has scored three times in 11 matches.
He is the son of Les Bleus’ legendary 1998 World Cup winning defender Lilian Thuram, who also won Euro 2000 with his country.
