St. Etienne striker Emmanuel Riviere has revealed he is “flattered” to be linked with a move to Arsenal this summer.
Riviere, 21, is a highly rated forward who has drawn comparisons with former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in the French press.
The frontman helped Les Verts to a 10th place finish in Ligue 1 last term scoring 8 goals, and has since been linked with the Gunners and Premier League rivals Liverpool.
“I am flattered to be linked with the clubs mentioned. I am a young player, so to be linked with Arsenal is fantastic for me.
“If Arsene Wenger is interested in you it means you have potential to be a very good player.
“People compare me to Thierry Henry, and that is a big compliment. If I can achieve half of his career I will be happy.”
