Manchester United want Arsenal starlet Ethan Nwaneri and may be looking to tempt him at Old Trafford.

Mikel Arteta brought on the 15-year-old Hale End academy graduate in the dying moments against Brentford with the Gunners 3-0 up. Nwaneri was named as a substitute along with injured captain Martin Odegaard and was so young he had to change on his own, away from the rest of the squad.

Arteta claimed he made his decision to play Nwaneri based on a ‘hunch’ he had from the teenager – but it’s been suggested there was an ulterior motive to make him his beginnings.
