Arsenal in battle to secure the services of 9 goal teenage sensation
Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are keeping close tabs on MK Dons winger Dylan Asonganyi, according to stories.
Asonganyi has had a great start to the 2017/18 campaign, netting nine goals in seven matches for the Dons’ Under-18 side, and the 16-year-old’s form has caught the attention of the Premier League’s big teams.
The Mirror suggest the North Londoners, United and Liverpool are all on red alert as a result of the youngster sensation’s goalscoring exploits this season.
It’s believed Robbie Neilson is set to promote Asonganyi to his first-team side at Stadium MK, with the club currently lying bottom in League One.
And, with Asonganyi ready to make his first-team breakthrough in the coming days, the Dons are eager to keep hold of the England youth international.
West Ham are also understood to be showing a strong interest in the youngster.
Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez.

Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere will also see their Arsenal deals end at the point of June 2018.
