Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United are all keeping tabs on Benfica youngster Joao Carvalho, according to reports.
Carvalho is one of Portugal’s brightest youngsters and he is being tipped to achieve big things in the future.
The youngster who plays as an attacking midfielder is currently on loan at Portuguese Liga side Vitoria Setubal. He only recently became a part of Setubal’s first team but there is no doubt about his talent.
According to Standard Sports, Arsenal scouts were present at Setubal’s game against Braga on February 26 to watch the midfielder.
Scouts from Tottenham and Manchester United were also at the game to run the rule over the midfielder.
He has made just four first-team appearances this season and a summer move to the Premier League will come too soon for the soon-to-be 20-year-old but Arsenal would continue to keep tabs on his development in view to making a move in the future.
We have a good history of developing young players and Carvalho could well be the next to come through at the Emirates but first he has to show that he has the potential to play for a big club like Arsenal.
