Man United were earlier reported to be ahead in the race to sign Argentina international wonderkid Alex Luna but they are set to be overtaken by Arsenal with interest already shown.

Alex Luna is the talk in town across Europe for many agents as he has been impressive with Rafaela, especially with his outing in the last season before it was ended by the Coronavirus Pandemic.

A report by AS which cited MilanLive, claims that the 16-year-old is attracting interest from the North London outfit while Man United and Man City are also making moves to land him.

Italian Serie A outfit AS Milan are also in the race for Alex Luna alongside Juventus but Man United and Arsenal have been favoured for the deal if he is to leave his current club in Argentina.

However, due to his age, Alex Luna will not be able to leave Argentina until he is 18 even if he agrees on a deal with any club now.

With every possibility that Alex Luna will be heading straight to the first team of the club he will eventually sign for, his suitors will not get him any cheap because of how highly valued he is.
