Arsenal & Manchester United to scrap for £10m wonderkid

Jack RobertsThere is a tense atmosphere in the Football Transfer Tavern as Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal are all chasing a wonderkid from Fulham.

According to The Mirror, Patrick Roberts has attracted attention from all of these Premier League giants.

The 17-year-old winger made two Premier League appearances last season, won the Under-17 European Championships with England and he is now part of the Three Lions’ Under-19 set up.

Despite Fulham’s miserable start to life in the Championship this season, Roberts has featured seven times in England’s second tier.

A bid around £10 million would perhaps be difficult for the Cottagers to refuse in January as the youngster only has 18 months left on his current deal.

However, Liverpool may provide further competition to sign him in January as the player’s parents originate from near Merseyside and the Reds are also the team he supports.

So a late bid from Anfield giants could be the difference in capturing one of the country’s most exciting young talents.
