Liverpool have beaten Arsenal for France Under 18 international Chris Mavinga.

The defender, who had also been watched by Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi, moved to Anfield from Paris Saint-Germain on a three-year deal, according to France Football.

The 18-year-old follows in the footsteps of striker David Ngog, who joined Liverpool from PSG for £1.5million last summer.

He can play at centre-back or full-back and is seen as one of the country's brightest prospects.
