Arsenal have been watching Le Mans goalkeeper Yohann Pele.Arsenal have been watching Le Mans goalkeeper Yohann Pele, who has been one of the stars of Ligue 1 this season.
Since winning promotion, Le Mans have adapted soundly to life in the top flight and currently reside in mid-table.
The performances of Pele have been a key factor in the team's form as he has conceded just 16 goals in 19 games.
His displays have been monitored by Arsenal, who have dispatched former Gunners defender Gilles Grimandi to watch Pele on numerous occasions this term.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger constantly seems to be on the lookout for a new keeper and has yet to find a long-term replacement for David Seaman.
At just 23-years-old, Pele, who has spent his professional career with Le Mans, has the potential to be a mainstay of a top team for many seasons to come.
