Although he has just broken into the first team in Caen, a trio of Premier League clubs are thought to be circling les Malherbes’ young star…
Young Caen midfielder Sambou Yatabare has hinted that several Premier League clubs are running the rule over him.

The 6ft 3in 20-year-old has made two first team appearances for the relegation threatened Ligue 1 club this season.

It is claimed that the likes of Arsenal, Everton and Newcastle United are interested in the starlet, although such rumours are yet to be officially confirmed or denied.

Yatabare has said that he is unaware of Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi watching him play recently, however, he admitted that he might consider a move to England at the end of the season.

"I am not aware of Grimandi coming to see me play, however, I know many clubs are looking at me," Yatabare is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I am happy because it means I am doing well. I know the Premier League is a tough league.

"At the moment, I am at Caen and I love it here. It depends on my club officials if I am to move.

"To be honest, the Premier League is the best league, so when clubs come for you, you need to listen.

"I [have] also heard [that] there are two other clubs interested, so let's wait and see. I need to finish the season and think about the rest."
