Arsenal are reportedly in a three-horse race for young goalkeeper Brad Young who plays his club football for National League side Hartlepool.
According to The Sun, the 17-year-old Hartlepool shot-stopper is also a target for both Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.
It was also revealed that these clubs (Chelsea and Manchester United) are prepared to make a six-figure bid for the player.
Brad Young is a 6ft 4in goalkeeper and he became prominent after he was invited to the England national team setup.
He would definitely be a signing for the future if one of the three clubs decide to sign him.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all have several first-team goalkeepers on their books at the moment.

- Man United Linked With £22.5m Swoop For 22-Year-Old Star
For Manchester United, Spanish international David De Gea is the first choice shot-stopper at Old Trafford, but his position is increasingly coming under serious threat from Sergio Romero who is widely regarded as one of the best second choice goalkeepers in European football. Also, Dean Henderson is also closing in on a first-team role with the Red Devils.
England national team player Dean Henderson is on a season-long loan deal at Sheffield United from Manchester United. He has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League this season with nine clean sheets.
No other Premier League goalkeeper has more clean sheets than Dean Henderson this season. He is on loan for the season for the second time at Sheffield United from Manchester United.
At Chelsea, first-choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is under serious pressure after some below-average performances in the Premier League this season and he could leave the club this summer. The Spaniard has lost his place for 38-year-old shot-stopper Willy Caballero.
Bernd Leno and Emiliano Martinez are the first choice and second choice goalkeepers at Arsenal respectively.
