Paris St Germain's teenage forward Gael N'Lundulu could be on his way to Portsmouth, according to reports in France.
The FA Cup winners are reported to have seen off competition from Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton in the chase to sign the 16-year-old, who snubbed the chance to stay in Paris after the club failed to offer him a professional contract.
'He has turned down our offer of a trainee contract,' Bertrand Reuzeau, head of youth football at PSG, told French newspaper Le Parisien.
'We were not prepared to do more for a young lad who is yet to prove himself. It was a financial choice,'
N'Lundulu said: 'The offer from Portsmouth was very interesting. If PSG had really wanted to keep me, I would have stayed.'
