Arsenal are as keen as Manchester United when it comes to signing Erling Haaland, according to reports.

The Old Trafford side have long been credited with a serious interest in the Norwegian striker, who has lit up the European stage this campaign with his goals in the Champions League.

And while United are thought to be leading the chase, a report has suggested Arsenal are also very keen on the 19-year-old.

German outlet Bild have suggested Haaland and his father Alf-Inge have visited the north London club as they demonstrate their interest.

While Arsenal have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Gabriel Martinelli to call on up front, they also like the 26-goal hot shot.

It has also been reported that Haaland’s dad is not that keen on him moving to the Premier League due to fears over game time.

He would supposedly prefer a switch to Germany and sister club RB Leipzig as he focuses on Haaland’s development.
