Arsenal are reportedly leading their Premier League rivals Man United in the race to secure services of highly-rated defender Dylan Crowe from Championship outfits Ipswich Town.
The 17-year-old is believed to be in high demand among top-flight teams, despite the fact that he has yet to make his senior debut for the English club.
Crowe emerged as a rumoured target for the Red Devils during the last summer transfer window and, according to The Mirror, he is now on the Gunners radar ahead of the winter window.
A couple of foreign teams are also believed to be keeping close tabs on the England age-grade international, with Dortmund and RB Leipzig keen to add more British prospects to their ranks.
However, the Gunners are considered the frontrunners to secure services of highly-rated right-back Crowe, who helped his national team to reach the semi-finals of the European U17 Championships earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester United go head-to-head to sign another talented Englishman Harry Maguire who has been rumoured with an exit from King Power Stadium.
