Reports are emerging that claim that Rafael Benitez has entered the race to sign Bordeaux’s Henri Saivet.

The teenage forward is the youngest ever player to appear in the first-team at Bordeaux and his potential has not gone unnoticed.

Arsene Wenger has been watching him over the last couple of years and has even invited him to visit Arsenal’s North London training ground. Wenger has also sent Steve Rowley, his chief scout, to watch the young star in action.

The 18 year old was originally with St Etienne, but signed a deal with French giants Bordeaux instead.

Reports are coming out of France that claim that both Liverpool and Arsenal are closely watching the youngster, but Bordeaux are not entertaining the speculation.
