Camavinga agent offers hope to Arsenal: He needs to play

The agent of Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga insists his future is wide open.

The teenage France international is being linked with Arsenal this week, while he's spoken of interest from Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Agent Jonathan Barnett told STV: “Believe me, we have a lot of offers this year, a lot of offers and some good ones. I'm talking about the best clubs. Playing for a Champions League club? It's pretty good. But we don't want to rush anyone. I am an old man and I also learned a lot in football. There is a good time to move on and playing is still the most important thing at his age. Playing in a good club is pleasant for him, it allows him to learn.

"Perhaps it is this year that he will want to have an extra year. He has to talk to his family, to his father. We're all going to sit down and decide. We will also speak with Rennes and decide. There is no rush for him. He is probably the best young player in the world.

"He's an incredible talent. He could play for any team in the world. He's still going to be a great talent at 19. He's not that old, 19 years old."
