Who is Clement Chantome?
Well, he’s a clever young footballer in the mould of the once great Didier Deschamps. He is said to be an intelligent football with good ball winning expertise as well as a good passing range. He currently plays for Paris Saint Germain as has featured int heir first team for the last 2 – 3 seasons having previously come through the PSG youth academy.
His Wiki states:
Of all players likely to hold a long-term future with PSG, Chantome looks a good chance to retain his spot and develop further into a player of real class. His call-up to France’s U/21 squad in October of 2006 is testament to the regard in which he is held by the FFF.
And that’s a major reason why Arsene is keen on bringing him in. The fee is unknown but not believed to be a huge fee…
