Manchester United could move for Arsenal starlet Ethan Nwaneri

Manchester United want Arsenal starlet Ethan Nwaneri, according to a report from Four Four Two.

Nwaneri made a new record last week when he became the youngster ever player at the age of 15 to make a Premier League appearance when he came on in the dying moments against Brentford with the Gunners 3-0 up. 

However, the youngster’s future at the club is not secured, and the Red Devils could prise him away from North London.

Promising talent

He is a terrific young talent, and the Gunners should not sell him to their rivals. 

At Arsenal academy, he has often played above his age group since the Under-13 level, which shows how quickly he is developing.

Although he didn’t touch a ball, the three minutes he spent on the west London pitch will give him immense confidence. 

The experience of being a part of senior football is something else. He was born after the Emirates Stadium was built, and so it was a bit of a fairy tale for him. 

According to Sky Sports, he is someone who has an eye for a goal, and who wants to be involved in the build-up play. 

Manchester United scouts have watched him previously and they could now make a move for him in the summer. 

His rise over the past 12 months has been dramatic. He was super for the Gunners in the 4-2 win over Reading U18, where he bagged two assists. 

Players like Bukayo Saka have emerged from the academy and made a huge impact in the Premier League. Nwaneri can do the same as well.
