The Lowdown: Nwaneri breaks record
At just 15 years and 181 days, Nwaneri became the youngest player in Premier League history on Sunday as the Gunners won 3-0 away to Brentford.
The teenager was introduced by Mikel Arteta in the dying minutes in what was a hugely proud moment for him and his family, recording one touch of the ball (Sofascore).
It says a lot about Nwaneri’s ability that he was even on the substitutes’ bench to begin with, so Arsenal clearly believe they have a really exciting asset in their ranks.
The Latest: United keen on move
According to The Times, the north Londoners face a battle to keep hold of him, and United are one of the clubs who have ‘tracked’ him recently.
Liverpool and Manchester City are also credited with interest in Nwaneri, who isn’t yet old enough to sign a professional deal at Arsenal and won’t get a scholarship until he is 16.
The Verdict: Key decision for teenager
Ultimately, the decision is going to lie with Nwaneri and his representatives, in terms of whether or not he stays loyal to Arsenal or gets his head turned elsewhere.
Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?
Yes, he's just having a bad time!
No, he needs to go!
United should certainly be eyeing up a move for the 15-year-old, though, with long-term planning something that has too often been lacking since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Taking a star youngster from under the noses of a rival is always something that can feel like an excellent piece of business and that would be no different if John Murtough could entice Nwaneri to come to Old Trafford.
