Arsenal are lining up a deal for 18-year-old Cameroon striker Ernest Thierry Anang.

The Panthere Sportive ace, dubbed the new Samuel Eto'o in his homeland, has won rave reviews after his six goals in the Cameroon league.

Arsenal's spies have watched Anang five times in two months and are ready to pounce this summer.

A source insisted to The Sun: "Thierry has the quality to play in Europe."
