By | 20th August 2019

Arsenal, Tottenham and Man City are all interested in Rennes teenager Eduardo Camavinga, claims a report.

The Daily Mail claim all three Premier League clubs scouting the 16-year-old on Sunday night as he helped Rennes to shock 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

The holding midfielder, who has been likened to Paul Pogba by the tabloid, enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season and he has so far excelled helping Rennes to two wins from two games.

Camavinga was not overawed up against Julian Draxler, Marquinhos and Marco Verratti and he completed 40 of his 41 passes and laid on the winning goal with a brilliant dink into the area which was finished off by Romain Del Castillo.

Rennes boss Julien Stephan said: “He played a match, indeed, like the whole team – very interesting.

“We are talking to him. He is someone who is also very well-constructed intellectually, who knows how to question himself, who knows how to ask the right questions.

“Many of the pros have taken him under their wing, because he is very respectful in the dressing room and very attentive to their advice. He blossomed with us this summer.”

The report claims Spurs were keen to sign the talented youngster last season, but now his list of admirers is growing by the week with Barcelona and Real Madrid also interested.
