Le Havre prospect Benjamin Mendy has revealed interest from Arsenal.

The 17 year-old has just penned pro terms with Le Havre.

"There was interest from a lot of clubs. I know Arsenal were one," he said. "But I have a sensible head on my shoulders. I am still living at the education centre here with my friends who play for the reserves. I have not changed.

"After Le Havre, I would like to spend two seasons in Ligue 1 and then go to England. I would then like to go to Barcelona, where my idol Dani Alves plays."
