, Man Utd and Chelsea looking to poach Arsenal history-maker Ethan Nwaneri, 16, in transfer swoop

MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea are trying to poach Arsenal’s record-breaking youngster Ethan Nwaneri, according to reports.

And Manchester City have also entered the tug of war for the 16-year-old’s signature.

Ethan Nwaneri could be leaving Arsenal when his current contract expires

Nwaneri became the youngest player in Premier League history when he came off the bench at Brentford in September aged just 15 years and 181 days.

His schoolboy terms at the Emirates expire this summer and he is yet to agree an extension.

And according to The Athletic, rival Premier League clubs are ready to swoop.

The Manchester clubs and Chelsea have identified the youngster as an exciting talent and continue to monitor the situation in the hopes of landing the midfielder.

But while the Prem giants hope to snap up Nwaneri, the report adds Arsenal still remain confident they can keep hold of him.

They have offered a fresh deal and negotiations are said to be underway once again – but a decision is yet to be made.

Nwaneri was not even born when the Emirates Stadium opened and the schoolkid is yet to complete his GCSEs.

He joined Arsenal when he was nine and made his Under-18s debut at 14, scoring a stunning solo goal.

And he got his chance in the first team when injuries took their toll on Mikel Arteta’s squad earlier in the season.

Arsenal have already convinced Nwaneri’s Gunners and England U17s team-mate Myles Lewis-Skelly to put pen to paper on a contract extension in North London.

The pair are currently at the European U17 Championships in Hungary and have both been on the scoresheet already.

Nwaneri grabbed the only goal of the game against Croatia in their Group D opener before Lewis-Skelly opened the scoring in the 4-1 win over the Netherlands.
