Lille are eyeing the young Frenchman for the January market.

"I have not had direct contact with them, but it's flattering. LOSC is a very big club," he told L'Equipe. "For now, the transfer window is not open and I am focused on Arsenal, but when there really is interest, we'll see what happens.

"In my heart, I know I can do something in this Arsenal team! But to be the best, I need regular matches."
