Arsenal are keeping tabs on Le Harve defender Harold Moukoudi but face competition from three clubs for the teenager, according to reports.

The Sun is reporting that the Gunners are looking at the possibility of signing the 19-year-old starlet but French clubs Bordeaux and Nice want the defender.

According to the same story, RB Leipzig are looking at Moukoudi as the German club look to give another promising talent the chance to develop in the Bundesliga.

Moukoudi is described in the report as one of the “biggest prospects in French youth football” and is already established in the France Under-18 squad.

Arsenal have a great record of polishing exciting French talents into world-class super stars such as Nicolas Anelka and Thierry Henry.

Moukoudi has already made 12 appearances in all competitions for Ligue 2 side Le Harve in the 2017-18 season as he continues to prove his talent in France’s second tier.

Arsenal have conceded eight times in six games in the Premier League this season ahead of the visit of West Brom on Monday night.

The Gunners signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in a club-record deal from Ligue 1 side Lyon in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal brought in Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac into the north London club on a free transfer from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04.
