Manchester United youngster Omari Forson is a target for Arsenal, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly facing a battle to keep hold of Omari Forson, with Arsenal keen to bring the teenager to the Emirates Stadium.

The 15-year-old joined United from Tottenham Hotspur's academy in January, and according to the Daily Mail, he is viewed as one of the best young talents in English football.

The report claims that Arsenal's new-look recruitment team under Mikel Arteta have identified Forson as the perfect signing to boost their crop of young players.

Forson largely turns out for United's Under-16 side but recently scored on his Under-18 debut against West Bromwich Albion.

The Red Devils allegedly beat Manchester City to his signature in January, but Arsenal are hoping that they might be able to entice the midfielder back to London in 2020.

Arsenal and United will lock horns at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on New Year's Day.
