Arsenal battling Premier League sides to sign exceptional midfielder

wenger5562Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been given a fresh topic to discuss this afternoon as they try our new local ales, debating whether or not this reported transfer target is worth pursuing.

Metro state that Arsenal are among the clubs chasing Norwich City starlet Todd Cantwell, who was a recent hero for the Canaries as he helped them progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup by scoring a brace in a thrilling 5-4 victory over Middlesbrough.

Cantwell put in a Man of the Match performance as Norwich fought back from a 4-1 deficit to progress, with a display that has caught the eyes of many leading sides in the top-flight.

Norwich want to tie down the 17-year-old to a new long-term deal but Arsenal are ready to swoop, keen to add the talented player to their strong contingent of youth prospects.

Liverpool, Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Manchester United are the other sides interested.
