Arsenal are reportedly in a four-way battle to sign young English defender Dylan Crowe ahead of the upcoming transfer window in the New Year.
According to the report from popular English news portal Daily Mirror, the Gunners will have to fend off competition from rivals Manchester United and the German Bundesliga duo of RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund in their bid to sign the 17-year-old.
The young English defender plays for English Championship side Ipswich Town where he’s yet to make a first team appearance.
He rose through the ranks at the club after joining at the age of 12 and has featured for the Championship outfit’s various youth teams.
Dylan Crowe came to the attention of European giants like Manchester United, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and others after he helped the England U17s to the European Championships during the summer.
The report from the Daily Mirror further revealed that Arsenal manager Unai Emery is in search of future stars and Dylan Crowe fits the bill.
It was further revealed that the North Londoners are in pole position to sign him ahead of Manchester United and the Bundesliga clubs who are buoyed by the recent successes recorded by young English players in Germany.
