Arsenal is in a pole position to sign a fantastic French wonderkid than Thierry Henry, according to reports.

Arsenal are interested in a French wonderkid who has been compared to Thierry Henry, possibly Arsenal’s finest player.

Arsenal has been connected with a young French forward who has been likened to Arsenal great Thierry Henry.

Mikel Arteta’s men completed the season on a high note, defeating Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-0 in their final game. However, after finishing five points behind Manchester City in the league, Arteta is eager to make important acquisitions, with the Evening Standard reporting that a “physical striker” could be on the way.

Arsenal now have Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah as No.9 possibilities, but strikers are still being linked with the club ahead of a summer roster makeover that could rock up London Colney.

According to Foot Mercato, Arteta is interested in Montpellier wonderkid Elye Wahi, with the north Londoners leading the fight for his signature. Tottenham Hotspur, according to TribalFootball, are also interested in signing him.

Despite being only 20, Wahi, a lanky forward with an eye for goal and the ability to sprint from a standstill, has drawn comparisons to French icon Thierry Henry. With his scoring prowess, the striker is statistically in good company.

With 10 goals, the 20-year-old has become the joint-youngest player in Ligue 1 history, alongside Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele, surpassing the likes of Henry and Karim Benzema. 

Arsenal also has Folarin Balogun, a talented American forward who concluded the season with 20 goals on loan at Will Still’s Reims in France’s top flight. This would undoubtedly make a transfer for Wahi difficult, given that Montpellier values him at £25 million.

Though the Gunners have a long history of nurturing young French players, a move for another forward now appears improbable. 

Transfermarkt values Wahi at €25 million.

Arsenal is preparing for a busy summer, with their pay structure poised to relax in anticipation of a return to the Champions League. Declan Rice remains the top focus.

Five first-team players are expected, including RB Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakin, Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy, previous academy graduate Yunus Musah, and two more Manchester City players. Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi, Real Madrid’s Aurelien Tchouameni, and Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante have all been mentioned.
