However, it has been suggested that the Spaniard will need more transfer windows to make them strong enough to challenge for silverware and could make more additions during the January transfer window.

Arsenal are credited with an interest in Lille attacker Nicolas Pele by France Football.

The winger joined the French side last summer for an undisclosed fee, signing a 5 year contract. He established himself as a regular for the club last season and managed to score an impressive 13 goals.

The 23 year old’s impressive performances have alerted clubs across and has already attracted scouts from Sevilla. He even turned down the chance to leave LOSC in the summer, with Southampton and Lyon came closest to securing his signature.

Manchester United are also reportedly interested in signing him as Jose Mourinho wants a direst, fast winger and could lock horns in January to secure his signature.

Lille know his signature is in high demand and are holding out for a £30 million offer before they decide to let him leave.
