Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing 17-year-old Watford prodigy Adrian Blake, a target for Arsenal and Tottenham.

According to a report from TEAMtalk, Adrian Blake is on the radar of Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The 17-year-old might leave Watford in the summer transfer window.

Blake is highly rated at the Championship club, but he is expected to leave them at the end of the season when his contract expires. Manchester United are hoping to snap him up on a free transfer, and it could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition for them.

The Red Devils have a pool of talented young players at their disposal and they will be hoping to add to that during the summer transfer window. Blake is a prodigious young talent with a big future ahead of him, and he could develop into a useful first-team player for Manchester United.

Meanwhile, the 17-year-old’s fellow Watford sensation Harry Amass is closing in on joining Manchester United. It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils can fend off competition from Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Gunners need to add more depth in the wide areas and Blake could be a useful squad player for them. Mikel Arteta has not been able to rotate players like Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka consistently because of the lack of options.

While Blake is not ready to start for Arsenal just yet, he could be a useful impact player for them. The talented young winger will add pace, flair and unpredictability to the Arsenal attack. Similarly, Tottenham need to add more quality to their squad as well.

The Watford prospect would be a superb, long-term investment for all three clubs. And it remains to be seen where he ends up. The 17-year-old will probably be hoping to join a club where he will get ample game time and a clear pathway to the first team.

Furthermore, the two clubs are likely to secure Champions League qualification, and that could give them an edge in the transfer race.
