Arsenal teenager Ethan Nwaneri has already managed to attract the interest of Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool.
According to The Secret Scout, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United are interested in Arsenal prodigy Ethan Nwaneri. The 15-year-old only made his Premier League debut last weekend and is already considered as one of the hottest prospects.
Ethan Nwaneri etched his name in Premier League record books by becoming the youngest ever player to feature in the competition. In doing so, he also eclipsed Arsenal’s record set by Cesc Fabregas, with the 15-year-old almost a year younger than the Spaniard.
Many drew puzzling expressions on Arteta’s decision to shatter the Premier League record to field the youngest player ever. Nwaneri entered the pitch late during Arsenal’s win over Brentford. It showed that the manager had seen something in the player to make him do something this indifferent.
It has only been days since making that surprise debut, and there are already reports on several clubs keeping tabs on the youngster. The Secret Scout tweeted out insisting Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United are already interested in Nwaneri.

There are not many details about the youngster’s contract, but the club’s confidence in him indicates a longer stay at Arsenal. The teenager has already played in the U-18 Premier League, notching a goal and two assists in three games alone.
Interest from other clubs could become a subject, but Arsenal may look to iron out his future quickly. The Gunners lost highly-rated talent Omari Hutchison to Chelsea in the summer and may not want to see another prodigy slip out of their hands.
For now, the confidence shown in the teenager must point towards a long-term contract, but the player will have options if he does not continue with the Gunners. The teenager may have plenty of interested clubs until he commits, which will be challenging for Arsenal.
In truth, with the recent developments of players like Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe, Folarin Balogun, and Charlie Patino, it may be easier for Nwaneri to remain with the club. He also looks like a highly technical player, which is what Arteta likes.
