An update on the future of Rennes standout Eduardo Camavinga has been forthcoming in the Spanish press this weekend.
Camavinga is one of the hottest young prospects in world football at the moment.
The Frenchman will not turn 19 until November, but is already an absolutely integral part of Rennes’ side.
Camavinga featured 25 times in Ligue 1 last term, playing a key role in his side securing a Champions League berth.
And the campaign to date has seen the midfielder notch a further 33 league appearances for Rennes.
Camavinga’s agent speaks out
His impressive form at such a young age has unsurprisingly seen some top clubs tipped to move for the midfielder, including both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
More recent reports stemming from France, meanwhile, have added Arsenal to the mix for the teenager.
The Gunners could certainly do with some fresh legs in midfield, and signing Camavinga is seemingly not that out of the question for an Arsenal side who were only recently able to lure Thomas Partey away from Atletico Madrid.
However, the north Londoners look set to face stiff competition from Los Blancos, if they indeed intend to secure the Frenchman’s signature.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, despite claims that the economic effects of the pandemic had put the brakes on Real Madrid’s interest in Camavinga, the capital outfit remain very keen on the Rennes midfielder.
It is added that, after their Champions League exit to Chelsea, Los Merengues decided that their midfield required added dynamism, along with an injection of power and strength, with Camavinga seemingly fitting that profile.
Marca also highlight potential interest from both Arsenal and Bayern Munich.
