Burnley are ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Stoke City defender Nathan Collins, according to a report.

Burnley are reportedly ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Stoke City defender Nathan Collins.

The 19-year-old, who has previously been linked with Manchester United, has made 24 appearances for the Potters during the 2020-21 campaign, including 19 outings in the Championship.

Stoke have allegedly accepted that they will be unable to keep hold of the teenager, though, with a number of Premier League clubs believed to have shown an interest.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are contenders for Collins, but Burnley are set to beat the Gunners to the Republic of Ireland Under-21s international.

The report claims that the Clarets are lining up a £10m offer for the centre-back and could even secure a deal before the January transfer window closes for business.

Collins has a contract with his Championship club until the summer of 2024.
