Arsenal are set to face a battle for the signing of Bayer Leverkusen striker Marc Brasnic, as reported by the Sunday People.
The 18 year old striker is considered to be hot property on the transfer market, and as well as Arsenal, Premier League champions Manchester City are said to be chasing his signature.
Both clubs are clearly looking to build for the future with the signing, who could be captured for cheap, given how highly rated he is by those who have watched him play.
Brasnic’s contract with Bayer runs out at the end of the season, and this has put the German side in a quandary.
They could allow him to depart at the end of the season for free, or look to make some money back on a player that they have invested time and effort into.
That means that he could be available for only £1.5 million for either Premier League side.
