Juventus star Paul Pogba attracted the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs after his exceptional campaign for the Serie A's Old Lady last season.
The gifted 21-year-old returned seven goals and seven assists from the heart of midfield that also consisted another breakout international football star - Arturo Vidal - who is wanted by Arsenal.
That fact that Pogba has been able to replicate his club form to the international stage has not only fortified his pedigree but seemingly enhanced the competition for his signature, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all linked in the past two months alone.
Pogba received an 8/10 performance rating for his Round of 16 performance for Les Bleus against Nigeria, with HITC: Sport reporter Ryan Lewis noting that "his runs from deep were powerful and decisive".
Pogba scored a simple headed goal in the World Cup earlier today and received a message on social media from his former team-mate at Under-20 level with France - Yaya Sanogo, of Arsenal (both pictured above during a training session at Gungoren Mimar Yahya Bas stadium just one year ago).
The hulking Gunners striker congratulated Pogba for his impressive display (congratulations - enjoy it!).
