Arsenal representatives sent to sign French midfielder, sensational transfer will be announced within days

France 2 journalist Fabien Leveque claims that Arsenal sent scouts to watch over Ligue 1 side Toulouse’s young midfielder Zinédine Machach.

The scouts attended Toulouse’s 3-1 win away over Rennes in the Coupe de la Ligue to watch over the young and talented midfielder.

The 19-year old midfielder has made his way into Toulouse’s first team this season on the back of some impressive performances. He has started in six of the last seven games for the French club and scored the first goal of his professional career against Montpellier back in October.

He has been playing on the left of a midfield diamond for his side. This signing would be the one for the future for the Gunners.
