Arsenal to snap up Marcus Coco?

Arsenal move for Guingamp starlet

Arsenal will sign French 20-year-old midfielder Marcus Coco in the summer, according to rumours from France this afternoon. The Gunners have deployed scouts to watch the Guingamp youngster on more than 3 occasions.

Marcus Coco has been one of the break out stars of the Ligue 1 campaign this season with some fiesty displays across the Guingamp midfield. Coco emerged from his club's youth setup in 2015 and hasn't looked back since; now seen to be a first team starter every game.

So far this season, Coco has bagged an impressive four league goals in 17 domestic games; a record suitable enough to have persuaded Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to make a move for the attacking midfielder in the summer. Rumours suggest the Gunners will pay around 6.75 million euros for the Guadeloupe born youngster.
