The 19-year-old was born in France but picked up by Sociedad in 2005 and has shown great promise in La Liga with Manchester United and Arsenal also showing interest.

John (Henry) and Tom (Werner) want to win - and you win with top players.'  Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger targets Spanish wonderkid Antoine GriezmannLiverpool can buy stars in January, says Comolli (as long as it's a bargain!)Homegrown kids must come first, reveals Liverpool guru ComolliLIVERPOOL FC
