Grimandi pictured scouting Ntep last night

Reports in the French media confirm Gilles Grimandi, Arsenal’s chief scout in France, watched from the stands as Auxerre striker Paul-Georges Ntep helped his side progress to the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France with a 3-2 win over Dijon.

The France under-21 international scored in the second half to give his side a commanding 2-0 lead before Dijon fought back with two-goals to take the game to extra-time. The home side eventually sealed victory in dramatic style when Lynel Kitambala netted a 121st-minute winner.

Arsenal have been strongly-linked with a move for Ntep, who has attracted interest across Europe, throughout the January window but have yet to make a formal bid, despite suggestions he’s already held talks with Arsene Wenger about a move.

It remains to be seen whether Ntep joins Yaya Sanogo as the second Auxerre striker to move to the Emirates in quick succession, but the interest certainly appears to be real.

Hope that we don’t get accused of N’tepping him up.

Leave you coat, stay, I liked it.


If this is really true, I’ll go around and N’tep some cunts!


Is he any good? any expert review?


I guess we’re ntepping things up a bit


I win 🙂


Haha. You certainly won


I bet you feel Ntep of the world right about now then

Yoyo Sanogoals

I reckon Ntep is all we are going to get this January window. Let’s hope he’s the next best thing since sliced bread.


NO NO NO NO, Please can we stop with these ntep jokes already? They’re awful!


Someone needs to Ntep in and have a word with the moderator


You multisyllabic show off

I wonder if our interest is genuine or just Ntepid


Sigh, there was no way I was going to come out Ntop on this one was I?

Ntep can certainly find the back of the Ntep and he’s great at Ntepovers


That isn’t Grimandi in that photo – It’s clearly Gilbert O’Sullivan.

Well known for his love of dogs, some bird called Clare and French cup football.

C’mon, you should know this shit, Blogs.


Looks more like Roman Polanski to me!

Al Gilmore

I can hear his song already (think Hanson)


No way his song wil easily be “Here comes the N’teper , murde ra”

Here comes the N’teper, murderer
Ready to score a header, murderer
Pick out the big man in the area, murderer
Ashley Cole is a twaaaat, murderer

Balls, can’t believe I missed that one.

gunner for ever

I would love to see him in Arsenal.He is quick,skilful and comfortable while finishing.his ability to shoot accurately from a distance and use of set piece balls are amazing.Please get him soon Arsene! Do not let others come and take him from our hands.Either sign him and bring him to the emirated immediately or sign him and give them back on loan until the summer only.


Grimandi scouting or enjoying a game, depending on how you ntepert things.

Arty's Art

He watches game ALL the time. He watched players ALL the time.

He said as much in the interview posted here the other day.

It doesn’t mean too much.


Hopefully he isn’t inept infront of goal

biafran arse

like our boy giruod?? nteping things up might help us in big games..ahiazuba!


I’m suprised he got a seat

No mind the gap jokes please.

Who’s he’s favorite band? Ndubs?


This could be real. After Arsene went to Spain to personally confirm that messi is not TGSTEL

Dennis Berkamp

Wenger needs to sign someone who has experience not another Nt-ing youngsters.


Kevin Phillips?

biafran arse

Kevin phils..that’s nTempting




We don’t need him. We need a backup. Somebody that has experience already. I don’t want to say that he is not a good player but at the moment we need a player that will come in and be a good backup.


Look at Grimandi, so badass. Other scouts attend the match with all sort of gadgets, he just simply brought his duvet along.


Are you sure thats not Stephen Rea?


Here comes the hot Ntepper…murderer. Sorry, that was poor…*hangs head in shame*


Can someone explain to me the point of a scout the whole world can recognise? Aren’t we tired of the Chel$kis of this world hijacking our deals? FFS he could at least put on a fake moustache or something.

Özil Gummidge

gunner for ever, could you link to the four minute YouTube video you have seen of Ntep?


Does anyone know when he’s striking a ball does he use his laces, the outside of his boot or his (you know what’s coming dont you….) Ntep.

teddy salad

After a night out with the lads, does he pick up ntep? You bet your ass he does.


If we sign him, and with Sanago already here, we’d have young French talent Ntep.


He’s got a perm
He’s got a perrrrrrrrm
Giles Grimandi,
He’s got a perm.

(Although I would NOT point that out to him directly)

Blogs Fan

I think we’re showing real iNteptitude at pun making here folks…


Is that linford Christie in the picture?


I’m pretty Nteptical about the whole thing. Don’t think he’s the drop-in striker we need to finish the season with. My vote would be a Sa- no go.


My first language is French. Can someone Nteprete these jokes?
