There aren’t many young French strikers that Arsene Wenger is unaware of - and he knows all about the qualities that M’Baye Niang will bring to Watford.
The 22-year-old recently joined the Hornets on loan until the end of the season from AC Milan, and is expected to feature against us on Tuesday night - and the boss says the team will need to keep an eye on him.
- 'Welbeck gives huge offensive potential'
- 'He's a player with great attitude'
- Wenger on Benzema, transfers, Debuchy
"I know Niang well because he played for Caen and we had him here [on trial]," Wenger said. “He’s a very talented striker individually, and he can create chances.
"He’s very strong as well physically, and very quick. I think he will be a major asset for them.
"He's on loan from AC Milan and we have to keep him quiet because he’s a guy who can do something special."
More polls coming soon!
