Bristol Post claims that Arsenal are keeping close tabs on Bristol City midfielder Han-Noah Massengo with a way to a potential move shortly.

The 18-year-old midfielder who arrived at Ashton Gate from Monaco for a price of £2.7million in the summer transfer window has confirmed himself as a regular starter in the Championship for the Arsenal and Robins are seemingly planning a swoop to bring the highly-rated midfielder to North London as an impressive long-term prospect.

He was born in France to parents of Congolese origin, Han-Noah Massengo progressed through the youth ranks of Monaco before exploding on to the first-team scene last season.

The teenager made only 7 games for Monaco in all competitions throughout his breakthrough campaign, but that was enough for him to transfer in Bristol City.

Capped by France at the U-18 level, he has fast earned the support of Robins boss Lee Johnson, making a total of 9 games in the Championship, with 8 of those coming as a starter.

The starlet is yet to contribute with a goal or an assist, but he has caught the eye regardless, drawing admiring looks for his all-action and tough-tackling performances in a box-to-box midfield position.
