Florentin Pogba: Big Arsenal fan

Paul Pogba could line up against his older brother Florentin in the Premier League next season after the defender was linked with a move to Everton.

United paid £89.3million – a world record fee – to bring the France midfielder back to the club from Juventus last summer and he could soon be joined in the north-west by his older brother.

According to reports in France, Everton and Red Bull Leipzig are currently both exploring the possibility of signing the 26-year-old defender, whose deal at St Etienne runs out next year.

Furthermore, weekly French magazine Jeune Afrique claim Everton are leading the chase and are currently preparing an offer.

Pogba played just 17 times for the Ligue 1 club last season and is reportedly keen to make the move to the Premier League, especially if it means being closer to his young sibling.

The Guinea international locked horns against his brother in the Europa League last season and it’s claimed a cut-price fee of £8million could be struck for the 26-year-old.

When questioned about a possible move to the Premier League, Florentin Pogba told L’Equipe earlier this year: “I wouldn’t say no to setting foot there.

“[But] I have not had anything concrete put on the table.”
