EPL: Arsenal inform United of a new fee for teenage forward


Man United have indicated an interest in Arsenal teenage forward Sam Greenwood and are willing to land him this summer transfer window, according to the Express.

The 18-year-old only joined the North London club from Southampton two years ago and has impressed by scoring 15 goals and providing six assists in 39 games for the Arsenal U-18 team.

He is now attracting interest from clubs, including Man United and Leeds United after gaining promotion to the Arsenal reserve team where he has made seven appearances so far.

Reports claim that the North London club are not willing to keep hold of the player as long as he gives his nod to his suitors as part of the revolution going on in the club.

However, an initial demand of £1.5 million for Sam Greenwood has been lifted by the Gunners as they now demand £3 million for the signature of the player.

The Red Devils will face a battle from Leeds United who are now back to the English Premier League after 16 years, according to the Express.

Should Sam Greenwood eventually complete a move to the Old Trafford, there is no doubt that he will continue with Man United academy as he will not be able to compete in the first-team.
