Paul-Georges Ntep: 'Arsenal appeals to me'

Auxerre striker Paul-Georges Ntep says that he would be open to a move to Arsenal, although he stresses that he needs to be playing regularly.

Auxerre striker Paul-Georges Ntep has said that Arsenal are a club that "appeals" to him.

The Gunners are thought to be among a number of clubs tracking the 21-year-old's progress.

"Arsenal is a club that appeals to any player," the French Under-21 international told L'Equipe. "This is a club that relies on young players.

"After that, it's always the same question - it depends on the project. Arsenal, yes, but to do what? If this is a club where I am going to sit on the bench, then where is the progression?

"I'm not saying I want to go to a big club to start immediately but at least that can happen in the medium term."

Ntep partnered Yaya Sanogo in attack in Ligue 2 last season, scoring eight goals.
