Manchester United and and Chelsea are reportedly among the clubs looking to sign Arsenal history-maker Ethan Nwaneri.

The 2007-born midfielder became the youngest-ever player in Premier League history when he came on as a substitute against Brentford aged just 15 years and 181 days.

Nigerian eligible Nwaneri broke the previous record held by Harvey Elliott, who made his top-flight debut for Fulham aged 16 years and 30 days, when he replaced Fabio Vieira in second-half injury time in that 3-0 win.

The teenager – who primarily operates as a number 10 – has also been capped by England at Under-16 and Under-17 level and has quickly risen through the youth ranks at Arsenal.

Nwaneri’s historic Premier League appearance has unsurprisingly piqued the interest of other clubs, and according to The Secret Scout, as many as four teams are keen to poach him from the Emirates Stadium.

Man United and Chelsea are reported to be tracking Nwaneri’s progress, while fellow Big Six sides Manchester City and Liverpool are also keen on the 15-year-old.
