Arsenal is reportedly keeping tabs on 16-year-old Fulham starlet Matt O’Riley, according to the Daily Mail.
O’Riley, 16, has starred twice in the Carabao Cup and once in the Checkatrade Trophy for the Cottagers this season.
And his impressive midfield performances have drawn attention from the Premier League big boys, according to The Mirror.
England have already snapped up the teenager – who is eligible to play for Denmark – for friendlies against Brazil and South Africa ahead of next month’s Under-17 World Cup in India.
But that would have come as no surprise to Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who predicted: “I expect he can be an important player for our club in the future.”
O’Riley operates as a playmaker and is winning fans over with his technical ability and sweet left foot.
Arsenal are looking to replace their summer losses after youth product Chris Willock and highly-rated kid Nathan Tella joined Benfica and Southampton respectively.
Man City, meanwhile, are on the lookout for cheap, English talent to make up their homegrown quota.
