Hartlepool United goalkeeper Brad Young is reportedly on the radar of Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal.

Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on teenage Hartlepool United goalkeeper Brad Young, according to a report.

The 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with the National League side last summer and has impressed enough to earn a call up to the England youth ranks.

The Sun claims that Young has caught the eye of Premier League pair Man United and Arsenal, with Hartlepool hoping for a bidding war over his signature.

United focused largely on bringing in young British talent last year, while Arsenal are said to be looking to strengthen their goalkeeping ranks at age-grade level.

The Gunners previously beat United to the signing of another keeper in Karl Hein, who signed professional terms at the Emirates Stadium last year.
