Transfer news: Mbaye Niang is on trial with the Gunners
French side Caen have given their blessing to hot prospect Mbaye Niang going on trial at Arsenal.
The 17-year-old forward has also been linked with Tottenham and Newcastle but Caen moved to quash reports that Niang had gone without their permission.
A statement on Caen’s official website read: “Contrary to what has been written on certain French and foreign websites, Mbaye Niang has left to have a trial at Arsenal with the agreement of president Jean-Francois Fortin and technical staff headed by Patrice Garande.
“At this point, Caen has not received any offer from a club, either in France or abroad, for Mbaye Niang.”
