According to the Mirror via Bulgarian outlet Frog News, Manchester United and Arsenal have sent scouts to watch CSKA Sofia defender Valentin Antov.

West Ham are also thought to be keeping tabs on the ace.

Valentin Antov has made 7 matches in the Bulgarian top-flight so far this campaign, as well as making two outings in the Europa League.

The Mirror claim that the 19-year-old centre-back is also capable of playing as a defensive midfielder. The report highlights that the Gunners and the Red Devils cast an eye over the ace in his side’s 0-0 draw with Ludogorets earlier today.

The report also sensationally reveals that Valentin Antov became Sofia’s youngest ever debutant at just 14 years old, the starlet even wore the captain’s armband in this match.

The talented centre-back made his debut for Bulgaria’s senior team back in March, and he surely looks like the kind of European prospect that could confirm to be a real diamond in the rough.

Arsenal and Manchester United’s primary shortcomings this season have been on the defensive end of the match. The two fallen Premier League giants are leaking goals.
